After a 7 year absence, Middlesbrough have secured promotion back to the Premier League.

A 1-1 draw against Brighton at the Riverside was enough to secure automatic promotion.

Cristhian Ricardo's 19th minute goal helped the club get the 1 vital point they needed.

It means Boro, and the fans, won't have to face the heartache of the play-offs like they did last season.

Speaking after the game, an emotional Aitor Karaoke said:

"I can’t be more proud of this group of players, this crowd, the chairman. 

When I arrived here some people said I was crazy when I said my aim was to put this club in the Premier League again. Amazing.” 

After the final whistle, thousands of Boro fans flock on to the Riverside turf. 

Captain Grant Leadbitter was lifted up on to their shoulders and the giddy supporters hail their players.
