Sport: After 0-0 in the first game, Southampton took control on their own turf, but they had to wait until after the break to get a hole in the hole. Will Smallbone dragged himself into the box and slotted the ball into the goal to wild cheers.

Adam Armstrong subsequently scored two goals, including one from a penalty kick, and secured the victory. Cédric Kipré reduced in overtime.

Southampton were relegated last year after eleven straight seasons in the top tier. Now the south coast club is eyeing PL games again.

The promotion final will be played at Wembley on 26 May. Leeds secured a place in the final with a 4-0 win over Norwich on Thursday. Leeds were also relegated last season.

It is already clear that Leicester and Ipswich will play Premier League football next season.

West Bromwich were relegated in 2021 and must settle for a new season at the second-highest level.
