Hull City have been promoted to the Premier League following a 2-2 draw with Cardiff City at the KC Stadium.

The Tigers were second coming into the final day, just a point ahead of third-placed Watford, and knew they needed to match or better the Hornets' result against Leeds United to secure top-flight football.

Hull's point came courtesy of goals from Nick Proschwitz and Paul McShane and thanks to Leeds' dramatic 2-1 win at Watford, that was enough to secure their promotion.

In a fascinating finish to the season, the Tigers were awarded a penalty when they were leading 2-1 going into injury time. Proschwitz missed the spot-kick and then the Bluebirds got a penalty of their own at the death, which Nicky Maynard converted to leave all eyes and ears fixed on the action at Vicarage Road, where the score was 1-1 before Ross McCormack scored a late Leeds winner.

Hull lost their top-flight status in 2010 and have finished 11th and eighth in the last two Championship campaigns. The appointment of Steve Bruce as manager at the start of this season proved to be a wise choice and he has guided them to their first ever automatic promotion to the Premier League, where they will join their final day opponents Cardiff.
