Forest seal Premier League return after 23 years away


Nottingham Forest sealed their return to the Premier League after 23 years away thanks to a 1-0 win against Huddersfield at Wembley.

Levi Colwill's own goal after 43 minutes was the difference between the sides in the Championship play-off final on Sunday, meaning Forest will play in the top flight for the first time since 1999.

It completes a remarkable season for Forest, who were bottom of the table after eight games when Steve Cooper took over in late September.

Huddersfield, meanwhile, see their dream of getting back to the Premier League after three years away come to an end.

The breakthrough came just before half-time for Forest via the unfortunate Colwill, who inadvertently turned James Garner's shot into his own net with an outstretched leg that left Lee Nicholls in the Huddersfield goal helpless.
