Ekong’s Watford win promotion to EPL

Super Eagles defender William Troost-Ekong’s Watford returned to the Premier League after just one season in the Championship after defeating Millwall 1-0 thanks to a first-half penalty by Ismaila Sarr to seal promotion on Saturday.

Xisco Munoz’s side returned to the top flight after just one campaign in the second tier after beating Millwall 1-0 in a matchday 44 Championship clash.

Sarr was the man who scored the only goal of the game. He got it in the 11th minute after being fouled in the box. The home side were very comfortable after that and Millwall rarely threatened going forward.

They are mathematically promoted as they are 2nd on 88 points. Brentford are 10 points behind and have three games remaining so they cannot catch them.

Watford’s achievement has been similar to Norwich’s. They were relegated from the Premier League in 2019-20 and now they have got promoted straight away.

There is just one place left up for grabs in the fight to play among the big boy’s next term. Sportinglifeng
