Charlton Athletic secured promotion back to the Championship with a 1-0 win at Carlisle United on Saturday.
Bradley Wright-Phillips (pictured) fired the only goal of the game 14 minutes from time and with Sheffield Wednesday being held at Colchester United, the three points meant the Addicks were assured of one of the two automatic promotion spots in League 1.
Dany N'Guessan blazed over for the visitors in the first half but the play-off-chasing hosts threatened to spoil the party - which culiminated in joyous scenes on the pitch for players and fans - by hitting the post early in the second half through Liam Noble, and also went close through on-loan Sunderland man Jordan Cook.
At the other end Wright-Phillips had already been denied by keeper Adam Collin when clean through before the striker prodded home his 22nd goal of the season after the hosts had failed to clear a Johnnie Jackson corner.
Brunton Park remains a happy hunting ground for Charlton, who have won promotion at the ground three times in the past 31 years.
They now need just four points from the final three games of the season to be crowned champions.
