Cardiff promoted to Premier League as Barnsley, Burton go down

Cardiff finish second and will join Wolverhampton Wanderers in the Premier League next season.

Cardiff City ensured second place in the Championship and automatic promotion to the Premier League on Sunday afternoon thanks to a goalless draw at home against Reading.

The Welsh club finished two points ahead of Fulham, which lost 3-1 at Birmingham to end its 23-game unbeaten run in the league.

The relief to be back in the Premier League after a nervy end of the season was palpable. Etheridge was 25 and, when he signed for Walsall in the summer of 2015, he had far more global caps to his name than league appearances.

The 28-year-old's pathway to the top has had a globe-trotting randomness about it.

In October of that year, with patience running out and his bags packed, Etheridge received a call from out of the blue that put his flight to the Philippines on hold.
