Watford have secured an immediate return to the top flight having finished second-bottom of the Premier League in the 2019-20 campaign

Ismaila Sarr's 11th-minute penalty proved enough as Watford guaranteed one of the two automatic promotion spots alongside Championship leaders Norwich City, who booked their top-flight spot last weekend.

Xisco Munoz's Watford have secured an immediate return to the top flight - which has been worth at least 160m pounds ($221.3m) in previous seasons - having finished second-bottom of the Premier League in the 2019-20 campaign.

Daniel Farke's side need two points from their remaining two games to guarantee the second division title.
