Norwich back into Premiership

1:51 pm on 3 May 2011

Norwich City will return to the English football Premier League next season for the first time since 2005 after clinching promotion.

The Canaries made sure of finishing as runners-up to Championship (second division) winners Queens Park Rangers by beating Portsmouth 1-nil.

Norwich have 83 points from 45 games, four ahead of third-placed Cardiff City with one match left.

Cardiff, who lost 3-nil at home to Middlesbrough today, still have a chance of going up through the four-team promotion playoffs.
