Neil Warnock's team failed to score, but it was enough to send them up along with champions Wolverhampton Wanderers, after Fulham lost 3-1 to Birmingham City.

Only the top two at the end of the regular season were guaranteed a place in English football's lucrative top flight and second-tier title-winners Wolves had already secured one of those spots heading into Sunday's final round of regular-season Championship matches.

Both contenders face sides who are not safe from relegation but Cardiff have home advantage against Reading while Fulham, who have the better goal difference, travel to Birmingham City.

Derby's dominant 4-1 win over Barnsley kept them at sixth after Middlesbrough drew 2-2 with Ipswich.

Elsewhere, relegated Sunderland recorded a 3-0 home win over Wolves, Sheffield Wednesday thumped Norwich City 5-1, Sheffield United overcame Bristol City in a five-goal thriller, Leeds United won 2-0 at home to Queens Park Rangers and Brentford drew 1-1 with Hull City.

Meanwhile Bolton beat the drop in remarkable fashion after beating Nottingham Forest 3-2.

Aaron Wilbraham was the hero with a late victor as Bolton - who had started the day 23rd in the table - scored twice in as many minutes to complete a miraculous escape.

Bolton were going down with three minutes left when Forest led 2-1 after goals from Ben Osborn (70) and Jack Colback (79) overturning Adam Le Fondre's early volley.

The 28 year-old never played for the Cottagers in league play, but went between the posts in his lone Fulham appearance in the Europa League in 2011, when a 2-2 draw against Odense at Craven Cottage saw them exit the group stage. Burton Albion were also consigned to League One following a 2-1 loss to Preston, who finish just outside the top six.
