Cardiff promoted to Premier League as Barnsley, Burton go down

While fans were watching the game at the Cardiff City Stadium, attention was also being paid to Fulham's game with Birmingham. Birmingham bagged a breakaway goal to put an end to Fulham's hopes and send Cardiff up automatically.

Etheridge, who traces his Filipino roots in Tarlac through his mother, said he was "emotional" with the success of Cardiff this year and the prospect of moving into the Premier League.

Warnock, one of the most charismatic managers in the English game, gets a fourth shot in charge of a Premier League club after stints with Sheffield United, Queens Park Rangers and Crystal Palace.

"Burnley went down the first year [they went up to the Premier League], but they used the money, the infrastructure of the club changed, they got everything done and then they came back up stronger".

"I've never known a week longer than this", Warnock said.

Fulham lost for the firast time since January and will have to make their way through the playoffs as Cardiff sealed their promotion to the top-flight.

The bandits came from neighbouring Dansadau village of Zamfara State, about 10 minutes' drive to Birnin Gwari, residents said. The governor also directed the State Emergency Management Agency, to provide relief materials to the affected communities.

They have been in contention for promotion for most of this season ahead of more fancied teams like Aston Villa and Middlesbrough.

Cardiff City have been promoted back to the Premier League, and they are already being tipped to survive.

When Warnock was appointed in October 2016, Cardiff were second from bottom of the Championship.

Warnock proved to be a ideal fit for Cardiff, which plays in the image of its gritty and no-nonsense manager. "I got offered a short-term contract at Oldham, to sit on the bench", says Etheridge, whose only game for the club was in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy against Preston North End.

He added: "Nobody gave us a chance".
