Bournemouth is back in the Premier League, one year after being relegated from it.
Nottingham Forest will now have to rebound and find the top tier through the Championship Playoffs.

The fine margins of football were on full display as Kieffer Moore’s late goal lifted Bournemouth to a 1-0 win over third-place Forest to seal automatic promotion to the Premier League with one matches left in the Championship season.
The Cherries have also gone up with a manager who was also relegated… with a different team.
Ex-Fulham boss Scott Parker joined Bournemouth in June, one day after leaving the Cottagers as both parties headed to the Championship.
Bournemouth’s 85 points are five behind division-winning Fulham, but the total gives them a six-point advantage on Forest and Huddersfield Town.
Both Forest and the Terriers will make the playoffs, as well as two of Sheffield United, Luton Town, Middlesbrough, and Millwall.
