If Cardiff fail to win and Fulham claim three points at Birmingham, the Cottagers will go up in second place.

Cardiff will join Wolves in being promoted automatically to the Premier League with victory at home to Reading.

After the final whistle, Warnock described guiding the club to promotion as "the biggest achievement in my 38-year career by an absolute mile".

Only the top two teams at the end of the regular season are guaranteed spots in the Premier League. "I've not slept for longer than about three hours".

They have been in contention for promotion for most of this season ahead of more fancied teams like Aston Villa and Middlesbrough. The playoff final is at Wembley Stadium on May 26.

Neil Warnock's men earned a record eighth promotion for their manager, but made hard work of a scrappy Reading side.

Already achieving promotion, Newcastle United dispatched Cardiff City again, this time 2-0.

Neil Etheridge will be the first Southeast Asian to play in the Premier League after his club Cardiff City gained promotion in the world's most popular football league.

Warnock proved to be a ideal fit for Cardiff, which plays in the image of its gritty and no-nonsense manager.

"It's been a wonderful 24 hours for me and the family", Warnock said.

"Vincent and the owners know I don't spend silly money, they are aware of that, but at the same time we do need five or six players to add to the squad to give us a chance really".

Phil Parkinson's team took the lead through Adam LeFondre in the 67th minute, only for Forest to quickly hit back with goals from Ben Osborn and Jack Colback, leaving Bolton on the brink of a quick return to League One.
