Swansea promoted to Premier League

Swansea defeat Reading 4-2 at Wembley to land the final spot in the Premier League.

Swansea have defeated Reading 4-2 at Wembley to land the final place in next season's Premier League.

The Swans ended their 28-year drought from the elite, becoming the first ever Welsh team to make the modern day Premiership.

Scott Sinclair followed up a successful penalty in the 21st minute with a goal from free play one minute later. Stephen Dobbie clinched a third at the 40-minute mark.

The Royals mounted a second half surge, with Noel Hunt and Matt Mills converting corners to bring the scoreline to 3-2 come the 57th minute.

Scott Sinclair ended Reading's hopes in the 80th minute, however, completing his hattrick from another penalty.

Swansea join previously-confirmed QPR and Norwich in the top flight next season. West Ham, Blackpool and Birmingham make the reverse trip to the Championship.
