Southampton striker Billy Sharp has admitted he is confident that his team can clinch promotion to the Premier League this weekend.

Second-placed Saints know that a win at Middlesbrough on Saturday will see the club rise back to the top flight for the first time since 2005.

"If we win on Saturday, we've done it - and for myself and a lot of the players here who have never played in the Premier League before, it would be a dream," said Sharp.

"It will be a tough game at Middlesbrough because they need two wins to stand a chance of making the play-offs, but we are confident we can go up there and get the job done."

Reading secured their promotion to the Premier League on Tuesday night with a 1-0 win over Nottingham Forest.
