Swansea City win promotion to the English Premier League

Swansea have joined QPR and Norwich in the Premier League following an exciting  4-2 victory over Reading in the Championship play-off final.

Scott Sinclair's 25th and 26th goals of the season in a two-minute spell midway through the first half set Swans on their way - the opener coming from the penalty spot - before Stephen Dobbie added a third.

But Wembley had another good match on it's hands as Reading displayed plenty of never-say-die spirit and hauled themselves right back into it through Noel Hunt and Matthew Mills, before Sinclair smashed home his second penalty in the 80th minute to seal promotion.

But it could be a long hard season for the Swans next season as Swansea are 8/15 with Paddy Power to be relegated.
