Wolves 2 Birmingham City 0: Jota and Afobe kick off promotion party

22. Sunderland – Average points per game of opponents in their final six matches = 1.54

Wolverhampton Wanderers' return to the Premier League after a six-year absence was confirmed on Saturday after Fulham's 1-1 draw with Brentford gave Nuno Espirito Santo's men an unassailable 10-point lead over the Londoners with just three games of the season remaining.

While Wolves can start planning for life back in the top flight, Birmingham are in grave danger of slipping into the third tier of English football.

Dalrymple said: "What he's brought in has been fantastic". We've recruited well and he's galvanized the group really strongly in a very short space of time. He's extremely good with the players and the staff.

Wolves will now focus on claiming the title with only four points needed from their remaining games to ensure they go up as Champions this season.

Wolves, who have been top of the Championship since November 18, host Birmingham in front of the Sky Sports cameras on Sunday at what will be a triumphant Molineux.

Wolves have accumulated 92 Championship points to date, coming from 28 victories and eight draws, with 76 goals scored in the process.

The Midlands club have connections with super-agent Jorge Mendes and have spent heavily on recruiting talent such as Diogo Jota, Ruben Neves, Willy Boly and Ivan Cavaleiro.

"Congratulations to the best team, but hope the league can be fair and equal to all 24 teams", protested Leeds owner Andrea Radrizzani after his side were beaten 3-0 by Wolves last month.
