English championship leaders Wolves secure promotion to Premier League

Fulham needed to win all four of their remaining matches to have any chance of stopping Wolves in their bid for promotion but a late Brentford goal from Neal Maupay against the Cottagers ensured it was all over.

Nuno Espirito Santo's side secured promotion from the second tier on Saturday with four games to spare after nearest promotion rivals Fulham could only draw 1-1 with Brentford in a West London derby at Craven Cottage.

Wolves managing director Laurie Dalrymple credits Santo, a former Porto and Valencia coach, with spearheading the team's revival since taking charge a year ago.

"He came in, he changed the playing style".

"What he has brought in has been fantastic", Dalrymple told Sky Sports. He's extremely good with the players and the staff.

"I don't really want to single people out particularly because it's been a huge unified club effort from start to finish but there's no doubt he's been an incredibly important component in the whole thing".

That episode convinced Comey that he needed to step forward with his own public accounting of the email server investigation. Comey has testified that it makes him "mildly nauseous to think we might have had some impact on the election".

Wolves who have occupied top spot in the Championship since October, will host Birmingham City on Sunday.

The Midlanders have led by example in the Championship this season despite irking rivals over their relationship with agent Jorge Mendes.

Victory over Birmingham on Sunday will also take Wolves to within a point of sealing the Championship title ahead of Cardiff City.

"Congratulations to the best team, but hope the league can be fair and equal to all 24 teams", protested Leeds owner Andrea Radrizzani after his side were beaten 3-0 by Wolves last month.

The way Wolves have achieved promotion has drawn criticism, however.
