Two sides have now booked their trips to England’s top flight after Newcastle United rattled off its 27th win of the season.
The Magpies earned a decisive 4-1 victory over Preston North End on Monday afternoon at St. James’ Park as the second-place side ensured its finish inside the top two in the English Championship.
Newcastle joins already-promoted club Brighton & Hove Albion, who currently sit atop the Championship on 92 points.
U.S. Men’s National Team defender DeAndre Yedlin was on the bench for the Magpies but didn’t feature in Monday’s match.
The third and final team to be promoted from the Championship will be decided by the league’s annual promotion playoff, which is held at the end of the season and contested by four sides that finish third through sixth position.
As it stands, Reading, Sheffield Wednesday, Huddersfield Town and Fulham occupy the four playoff positions.Follow @MattReedFutbol
