  1. Goodbye for now

    And, really, it seems only right that the final word goes to the Watford manager after his team's promotion - and so that otherwise concludes our coverage of today's English Football League action.

    Congratulations to fans of the Hornets and Hull City, commiserations to supporters of Swindon Town and Bristol Rovers.

    Thanks for your company this afternoon, we'll see you again very soon.

  2. 'It's nice when you have a good group'

    FT: Watford 1-0 Millwall

    Watford head coach Xisco Munoz told BBC Three Counties Radio:

    "We are in the Premier League. We hope everyone enjoys it and stays safe. It's important the fans enjoy, it's a moment to enjoy.

    "Everyone helped me, I have a big group behind me and it was an excellent run in the to the season.

    "I have been lucky with the players, we have a great connection, when everyone works with the same ideas and passion.

    "It's nice when you have a good group all moving in the same direction."

  3. Post update

    Bottom of the Championship

    Meanwhile, it's a nervy sight at the bottom of the Championship.

    Rotherham are four points adrift from safety with two games in hand in what's set to be a tense end to the season.

    They're level on points with Sheffield Wednesday, who sit two points above bottom-placed Wycombe.

    And Derby's loss to Birmingham today means they'll be hoping results go in their favour as they battle to avoid the drop.

  4. Post update

    Top of the championship

    Watford fans - soak this up!

    Their 1-0 win means they've sealed promotion back to the Premier League.

    It's looking tasty in the play-off places too, with just two points separating Brentford in third and Swansea in sixth.

  5. Familiar feeling for Tigers fans?

    This is Hull's seventh promotion from the third to the second tier.

  6. Hull City in the promotion party mood

    FT: Lincoln 1-2 Hull City

    I wonder what Hull City are making reference to here...

    The Tigers are back in the Championship after one season down in League One thanks to goals from top scorers Mallik Wilks and Josh Magennis.
