Burnley promoted to Premiership



Burnley have acquired the third place to get themselves in the Premiership after Wolves and Birmingham City.

Burnley went into the game as the underdogs with the pundits favouring Sheffield United to go up to the top flight in England.

A Wade Elliott stunner put the Clarets ahead and was the only goal of the game at Wembley.

This brings them into top flight football after a span of 33years and it also ended a long,long season for them which lasted 60 games.

Burnley finished fifth in the Championship, semi finalists in the Carling Cup and reached the round of 16 in the FA Cup.

However, this ends Sheffield's hopes of returning to the Premiership as well who were relegated two seasons back amid the Tevez transfer saga.
