Norwich City were crowned second tier championship champions on Saturday as they returned to beat Reading 4-1 at Carrow Road

Daniel Farke’s side were promoted to the Premier League on their first attempt two weeks ago, but defeats at Bournemouth and his fellow-promoted club Watford have made it necessary to wait for their penultimate game of the season to win the title

Reading midfielder Josh Laurent gave the visitors a 12th-minute lead, but Kieran Dowell hit either side of the half to turn the game around

Xavi Quintilla’s curling free-kick in the top corner made it 3-1 before Teemu Pukki added shine to the scoreline with his 26th goal of the campaign

Ivan Toney scored his 30th league goal of the season with a penalty after Marcus Forss opened the scoring as Brentford secured a second straight third place

Their 84-point tally would have guaranteed an automatic promotion last season, but now they must try to avoid yet another heartbreak in the promotion playoffs, having lost to Fulham in the final last season.

Wayne Rooney’s County Derby will lead their fight for survival until the last day of the season after fourth-placed Swansea City, who is also in the playoffs, come from behind to beat them 2-1

Derby are three points ahead of the relegation zone, but Rotherham United could close that gap if they win their game in hand at Luton Town on Tuesday

The other two playoff teams are Bournemouth, fifth, who lost 1-0 to Wycombe Wanderers, and Barnsley, sixth, who lost 2-0 to Preston North End
