Ipswich Town Triumphantly Returns to Premier League After 22-Year Hiatus

Ipswich Town made their way back to the Premier League after a 22-year hiatus by triumphing over Huddersfield Town with a 2-0 victory at Portman Road last Saturday.

Kieran McKenna’s team secured promotion by simply needing a point on the last day of the regular season, as they were promoted from League One just last year.

Wes Burns opened the scoring with a goal in the 27th minute, followed by Omar Hutchinson sealing the win early in the second half.

Even with a loss, Ipswich would have clinched promotion, as Leeds fell short of the three points they required in a 2-1 defeat against Southampton.

Joel Piroe equalized Adam Armstrong’s goal, but Will Smallbone restored Southampton’s lead before halftime, and the score remained unchanged.

Leeds will now compete against Norwich City in the play-offs, as Norwich dropped to sixth place with a 1-0 loss to Birmingham City.

West Brom’s 3-0 triumph over Preston North End secured fifth place for them, setting up a play-off semi-final match with Southampton.

Despite winning against Norwich, Birmingham, along with Rotherham United and Huddersfield Town, faced relegation to the third tier.

Plymouth Argyle’s 1-0 victory over top-six contenders Hull City and Sheffield Wednesday’s 2-0 win against Sunderland sealed the fate of Rotherham and Huddersfield’s downfall.

While Rotherham’s relegation was confirmed earlier, Huddersfield’s fate was all but sealed before the final day due to poor results.
