Wolves, already promoted to the Premier League , are on 98 points with games against Sheffield Wednesday and Sunderland still to come.

Sunderland’s second consecutive relegation was confirmed, following a 2-1 defeat to fellow strugglers, Burton Albion at the Stadium of Light.

Darren Bent returned to haunt his former team, equalizing after Paddy McNair opened scoring, before Liam Boyce headed in a late winner to leave Burton two points from safety.
