Brighton promoted to the Premier League!

Twenty years ago, the Seagulls nearly slipped out of the Football League at a time when the Goldstone Ground had been sold and they were forced to play in exile at Gillingham and the Withdean athletics stadium before the Amex Stadium was opened in 2011.

Glenn Murray fired the Seagulls in front shortly before the break with his 22nd league goal of the season before Solly March added a second from close-range.

Despite securing a spot in the Premier League, the battle for the Championship crown remains alive with Newcastle seven points back in second.

Brighton will return to the topflight of English soccer for the first time in 34 years after securing promotion to the Premier League on Monday.

Chris Hughton's side only marginally missed out on top-flight football a year ago when they finished third following a 1-1 draw with Middlesbrough on the final day of the season, before losing to Sheffield Wednesday in the play-off semi-finals.

But after a fifth successive league win, Brighton manager Hughton praised his side's resilience.

Ahmadinejad submits name for Iran presidential election
Iran's President Hassan Rouhani has submitted his name for candidacy in this year's presidential election. But disappointment with the 68-year-old's administration is palpable on the streets of Iran.

The 58-year-old told talkSPORT: "This club has Premier League facilities - the stadium and the training ground are exceptional, but of course, it's ok having the facilities, you've got to be a Premier League team". So for one individual and a local man to invest in these very hard times and do so into a football club with how hard running one can be, is outstanding.

Freddie Sears put the hosts ahead at Portman Road before former Ipswich man Daryl Murphy equalised. Instead they conceded twice more, David McGoldrick and Emyr Huws the scorers.

He said: "It had something to do with how the season ended last season, but I think it was more the fact that the players enjoyed being up that end of the table, competing, getting into the play-offs".

"I am concerned about the change in my team's performance from Leeds on Friday to the performance today", said Spanish boss Benitez.

"We are working to get back in the black which would be for the first time in our history and give some money back to the owner". We've had a wonderful support, we've managed to win games in different ways.
