Burnley have secured a return to English Football's Premier League after a beating Wigan Athletic 2-0 at home to seal automatic promotion from the Championship.

Burnley spent one season in the top-flight in 2009-10 before being relegated.

The Clarets will join Leicester City in the Premier League next season with City, who have a four-point lead, going up as champions after Wednesday's 1-0 away win at Bolton.
