Brighton earned an immediate return to Division One as they edged out Bristol City 1-0 in a tight Division Two play-off final courtesy of a single
Leon Knight penalty.
A largely dull first-half devoid of any real chances had its only highlight when Leon Knight curled a free-kick against the Bristol City cross bar.
The second period was little better though Bristol City dominated possession but they lacked the craft to fashion a real chance.
As the final whistle approached extra time looked inevitable but Chris Iwelumo's driving run into the area, with just five minutes remaining, resulted
in the former Stoke striker being caught by Danny Coles.
The referee had no hesitation in pointing to the spot and Knight stepped up to fire Brighton into the First Division.
