Sunderland promoted to the Championship

Former Premier League club Sunderland moved up to the English Premier League with a 2-0 win over Wycombe at Wembley on Saturday.

Goals Elliott Embleton and Ross Stewart have made magic for Sunderland who have been in the league for the past four seasons.

Embleton gave them the lead in the 12th minute after firing from outside the area before giving Stewart’s 26th goal of the season – his fifth against Wycombe – Sunderland 11 minutes from the end of the match; The Black Cats will now join England’s second tier Wigan and Rotherham next season.

Veteran striker Adebayo Akinfenwa joined Wycombe for the last game of his career, but the 40-year-old was unable to turn the score around.
