  1. Enjoy the party

    FT: Wolves 2-0 Birmingham

    Nuno Espirito Santo

    That brings an end to our coverage of the celebrations, but they'll continue for some hours yet in Wolverhampton.

    They'll seal the Championship title with a point at Bolton on Saturday, while Birmingham will continue to look over their shoulders going into their final three games.

    We're back for the next Championship action on Friday, when it's an all-London affair between Millwall and Fulham.

  2. 'It's a big moment for us'

    Carl Ikeme banner

    In the forefront of Wolves' minds throughout the season has been goalkeeper Carl Ikeme, who was diagnosed with acute leukaemia in July 2017.

    Wolves and its supporters have raised hundreds of thousands of pounds for charity while the club's longest-serving player has been receiving treatment.

    Quote Message: What Carl's going through is not easy for anybody – hopefully he can get through it, get back playing and doing what he loves from Matt Doherty Wolves wing-back told Sky Sports

    FT: Wolves 2-0 Birmingham

    Quote Message: It’s been great from day one, the boys have been unbelievable. I’m contracted to Bournemouth, I’ve had a great time there, but we’ll see what happens in the summer from Benik Afobe Wolves striker told Sky Sports

  6. Wolves one point away from the title

    FT: Wolves 2-0 Birmingham

    Championship table

    I'm sure Wolves fans won't tire of seeing this anytime soon.

    As you can see above, their side can now only be caught by Cardiff City, who are 12 points behind with four games left to play.

    If the Bluebirds drop points anywhere - or if Wolves get one more point from their last three games - the title is theirs.

  7. Post update

    FT: Wolves 2-0 Birmingham

    The tunes are blaring, the players are dancing - this party isn't ending any time soon.

    You'd imagine Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo will allow his troops to enjoy themselves this evening, having had to temper their celebrations yesterday because of this match.

  8. 'There's a chance for 100 points'

    FT: Wolves 2-0 Birmingham

    Quote Message: We’ve played with smiles on our faces as we have all season. We don’t want to take our foot off the gas – there’s a chance there for 100 points so we’ll give it our best shot from Conor Coady Wolves captain told Sky Sports

  9. Post update

    FT: Wolves 2-0 Birmingham

    The champagne is out and the Wolves players are bouncing around on the pitch.

    Manager Nuno Espirito Santo is now being thrown into the air.

    Joyous scenes at Molineux as they celebrate their promotion in front of their fans.

  10. 'You've seen why they won promotion today'

    FT: Wolves 2-0 Birmingham

    Darren Carter

    Ex-Birmingham midfielder on BBC WM 95.6

    Wolves v Birmingham
    Quote Message: From a Blues perspective, it was always going to be a tall, tall order to come here today - especially after Wolves were promoted last night. You've seen why they've won promotion here. They've been asked questions all the way through the season, they've answered them and fair play to them.
  11. FULL-TIME

    FT: Wolves 2-0 Birmingham

    Wolves v Birmingham

    That second half was a bit of a non-event but Wolves have a regulation victory to mark their promotion to the Premier League.

    Diogo Jota and Benik Afobe scored, while Birmingham had Harlee Dean sent off and drop to 21st on goals scored.

  12. Post update

    Wolves 2-0 Birmingham

    Birmingham have run out of steam but have played reasonably well here, all things considered.

    Their fate will be sealed in their final three games, against opponents who don't have the talent of Wolves.

  13. Post update

    Wolves 2-0 Birmingham

    Mel Eves

    Ex-Wolves forward on BBC WM 95.6

    Quote Message: There are so many ingredients that have come together at the same time and when you get that you get the results we've seen. Everyone's bought into the way Nuno Espirito Santo wants to play and, of course, the better the players you have the better chance you've got.
  14. INJURY TIME

    Wolves 2-0 Birmingham

    Wolves are playing keep-ball against the 10 men of Birmingham now.

    Blues will stay just two points above the drop zone with three games remaining.

    Three minutes of stoppage time have been added on.

  15. GOAL: Wolves 2-0 Birmingham

    Benik Afobe

    Wolves v Birmingham

    Birmingham miss a chance at one end and Wolves punish them at the other...

    Lukas Jutkiewicz has an effort saved by John Ruddy, when he should've passed, and then Wolves substitutes Alfred N'Diaye and Benik Afobe link up for the latter to dink over David Stockdale.

    That's surely the points wrapped up and Wolves will need just a further point for the title.

  16. CLOSE!

    Wolves 1-0 Birmingham

    Wing-back Barry Douglas almost has yet another assist for Wolves.

    He gets to the byline and cuts a beautiful ball back for sub Benik Afobe, who snatches at the ball a bit and strikes over.

    Peter Lineton: With some new signings, a striker or two and a couple of experienced defenders Wolves could compete well in the EPL next season with Nuno in charge

  18. 'Blues have got to take a chance'

    Wolves 1-0 Birmingham

    Mel Eves

    Ex-Wolves forward on BBC WM 95.6

    Quote Message: Blues now have actually got to take a bit more of a chance if they're to get anything out of this game.
  19. Post update

    Wolves 1-0 Birmingham

    An appeal goes over the tannoy asking Wolves fans not to come on the pitch at the final whistle.

    We'll see how obedient they are in a little over 10 minutes.

    Birmingham are in this game without really looking like scoring, while Leo Bonatini has shot into Row Z for the hosts.

  20. Post update

    Wolves 1-0 Birmingham

    Ged Scott

    BBC Sport at Molineux

    Wolves v Birmingham

    One of the curiosities of Wolves' triumphant season has been the goal drought which suddenly inflicted Brazilian striker Leo Bonatini after reaching early December as Championship top scorer on 12 goals.

    His last strike was the winner in Wolves' 1-0 win at St Andrew's. And, having come on as an early sub for he injured Cavaleiro today, he must have thought he was set to end that sorry run when he got clear in the Blues box.

    But the hand which David Stockdale stuck out to stop him must been agonising.
