Newcastle United will be back in the English Premier League next season after winning the Championship title with a 2-0 win at Plymouth Argyle on Monday.

Goals from striker Andy Carroll and winger Wayne Routledge in the first half were enough to see Newcastle take the match and the second-tier Championship, two weeks after the club had secured promotion.

United manager Chris Hughton, who now has the permanent job after an impressive stint as caretaker manager, praised his team's ability to grind out results.

"For a little while it's been about winning it. We have been the team to beat all season," said Hughton.

"I couldn't be more proud of this group of lads."

Newcaslte has 98 competition points from 44 games, nine points clear of the second-placed West Bromich Albion, who have also secured promotion to the Premier League.
