Newcastle United have secured promotion back to the Premier League without kicking a ball.

The Magpies are in action later, when they take on Sheffield United at St James' Park but their promotion was confirmed after Nottingham Forest failed to beat Cardiff City.

The match at the City Ground ended goalless between Forest and Cardiff City so as a result Chris Hughton's side can't be caught by the team in third place.

United have remained in the top two since the beginning of November having lost only four times all season and are the only team in England still unbeaten at home.
