LONDON (AFP) - Watford clinched promotion to the Premier League in dramatic fashion as their rivals slipped up in the final seconds on Saturday.


Slavisa Jokanovic's side had moved to the brink of reaching the top-flight with a 2-0 win at Brighton earlier in the day, yet it seemed like the Championship leaders would be made to wait for promotion by the results of the chasing pack.

But fourth placed Norwich conceded an equaliser in a 1-1 draw at Rotherham and third placed Middlesbrough slumped to a 4-3 defeat at Fulham after conceding a last-minute goal.

That was enough to seal Watford's return to the Premier League after an eight-year absence with one match remaining and they will be crowned Championship winners if second placed Bournemouth lose to Bolton on Monday.
