Cardiff City are back in the Premier League!
Congratulations Cardiff City!
Cardiff are back in the Premier League for the 2018-19 season after a dramatic final day of the season in the Championship.
In the end a 0-0 draw against Reading was enough for Cardiff to win promotion.
Fulham helped push Cardiff over the finishing line after they lost 3-1 away at Birmingham.
Neil Warnock has now won promotion a record 8 times in his managerial career.
Fulham’s last hope: Calls for Cardiff City to be docked points
In the final stages of the Cardiff vs Reading match there was a mini pitch invasion.
Around 50 Cardiff supporters rushed the pitch before the final whistle blew.

The disturbance caused a hold up in the proceedings, and it provoked a backlash on social media.
While it’s unlikely to happy, some fans – probably Fulham fans? – have been calling for Cardiff to be docked points for their unruly fans.
While that’s not happening, the FA could fine Cardiff for the scenes.
Suggested rule from next season. Pitch invasion = automatic 10 point penalty. Keep the last day drama going beyond final whistle.

Got to be a points deduction for that Cardiff pitch invasion!

Hope Cardiff get a points deduction for their fans invading before the full time whistle.

Pitch invasion at Cardiff. Disgraceful behaviour. Abandon the game. Dock Cardiff 3 points.
