And It's Goodbye From Hull...

Wednesday will face a double header against Bristol City in the Championship next season after Phil Brown led Hull City into the Premiership for the first time in their history.

Dean Windass bagged the only goal of the match with a wonderstrike just before half-time to give the Tigers a 1-0 win over Gary Johnson's Robins at Wembley this afternoon in front of 86,000 fans.

And that means Wednesday know all-but-one of their opponents for the 2008-09 campaign, with the final team yet to be decided in tomorrow's League One Play-Off final between Doncaster Rovers and Leeds United.

Derby County, Birmingham City and Reading will be the teams coming down from the Premiership to face the Owls, while from League One will be champions Swansea City and second-placed Nottingham Forest.
