Bank holiday Monday (25 May) was a joyous one for Norwich City fans, who get to celebrate knowing that their team will play in the Premier League next season. The Canaries beat Middlesbrough 2-0 to make the step up.
On a quiet day for UK football results last night, more than 85,000 were at Wembley Stadium to see the game. And they did not have to wait long to see goals.
After playing with the best defence in the league for the entire season, the Playoff final was the worst time to start making mistakes. Nevertheless, Middlesbrough were unable to prevent Norwich striker Cameron Jerome from scoring after 12 minutes.
Conceding so early was a major blow for a Middlesbrough side that struggled to score at times this season. The pressure got to them not long after the first goal –winger Nathan Redmond gave Norwich a comfortable 2-0 lead for the rest of the game.
