Hull's manager and players were in a state of shock as they secured promotion to the Barclays Premier League.

Hull City managed to scrape a 2-2 draw against Cardiff City.

Manager Steve Bruce told Sky Sports 2: ""I have been around the block and this was wonderful entertainment, but Jesus Christ, it's put us through the ringer,"

"Overall we deserved it. The ref gave them an unbelievable decision to give Cardiff a penalty but it's our day. I would like to say well done to Watford who pushed us all the way."

Watford, who started the day in third place in the Championship table, lost at home to Leeds and missed the chance to go up to English football's top division automatically.

Gianfranco Zola's team will now compete in the play-offs at the end of the season.

Hull City: 'It all comes down to the final day'

Watford could be back in the Premier League by tonight

Watford could return to the Premier League today.

The Hornets are third in the Championship, a point off the promotion places behind second-placed Hull.

Quite simply, if Watford get a better result than Hull, they'll go up.

The fixtures are in Watford's favour as Hull face the already-crowned champions Cardiff, while the Hornet's opponents Leeds have been struggling in 16th.

Watford manager Gianfranco Zola has said that an entire year's work now comes down to this one game.

Even if they can't do better than Hull tomorrow, they'll still have a chance of ending their six year exile from the top flight via the play offs.

Both games kick off at 12:45.
