Burnley's promotion means Middlesbrough and Brighton are chasing the final automatic promotion place on the final day.

Here's how the Championship table stands after the Clarets beat QPR to secure a spot in the top flight next season...

It just so happens that the Seagulls have to travel to the Riverside Stadium on Saturday to face Boro.

It'll be a case of winner-takes-it-all on Teesside - though Middlesbrough would finish second with a draw thanks to their superior goal difference.

We'll be back on Saturday with live text coverage of that match - and Burnley's bid for the Championship title. Hope you can join us then.

Will Spurs keep Leicester waiting?

Premier League: Chelsea v Tottenham (20:00 BST)

It's just two years since Burnley were being promoted to the Premier League alongside Leicester City.

Tottenham are the only side that can deny the Foxes a remarkable top-flight title triumph this term, although Spurs need to win at Chelsea later today to keep their slim hopes alive.

Burnley are promoted

Two players that left Burnley at the end of last season have been quick to offer their congratulations to their former team-mates...

Congratulations everyone at @BurnleyOfficial 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

Congratulations everyone at @BurnleyOfficial 👍👍👍

Sean Dyche is back out on the Turf Moor pitch. He's got a rather damp shirt on after being handed the obligatory soaking from the water bucket inside the dressing room.

His Burnley players are close behind him and they are rightly starting a lap of honour in the evening sunshine.

Burnley have got more money available to them this season with the money coming into the Premier League. This is a big test for Sean Dyche now. I'm sure he won't dismantle the side. But how does he add to it?

That was well off our performance level but the result was all that mattered today. The resilience, belief and character got us through. You can't be brilliant every week, we don't think we're the real deal, but we're a real group that sticks together.

More reaction to come from the Burnley camp. In the meantime, I'm sure Phil Cartwright's match report will make good reading for Clarets fans...

Promotion was almost expected with the way it went last season, despite being relegated. They have a better squad of players and some who have played in the Premier League. You feel they are on the cusp of something very big here over the next four or five years.

Joey Barton manages to find his son in the crowd and also manages to get himself through the thousands on the pitch and down the tunnel to join the celebrations with his team-mates.

They'll be back out to join the fans once the stewards have somehow cleared the Turf Moor pitch.

It's crazy. It has been a hard-fought year and the last five or six games have been very tough. It was a bit nervy as we knew the Brighton result and knew we needed to win. We got over the line in the end.

It's magic, it's a great feeling. You could feel the anticipation around the place when we kicked off. We knew what we had to do after the Brighton result earlier. Magic scenes here today. Getting that goal sparked relief around the place. I missed a lot of the Premier League last season but hopefully I'll get another chance next season.

Emotions are running high. All the boys have been immense and everyone has contributed to this. We will enjoy this but we want to go and win the league now. That is the next step.

They deserve it. Today was all about the three points. They started poorly but they got momentum in the second half. It was fitting Sam Vokes got the goal. It is an outstanding achievement by Sean Dyche and Burnley.

Nearly there for Burnley.

Some home fans are already getting themselves in position for a potential pitch invasion.

Burnley 1-0 QPR

Little threat from QPR in added time and Burnley will look to pin it in the far corner and keep possession.

INJURY TIME

Burnley 1-0 QPR

THREE MINUTES ADDED ON.

Burnley 1-0 QPR

Alejandro Faurlin has another speculative effort from a QPR corner, but it's deflected well wide and then Burnley can get it clear almost immediately.

Burnley have been dominant in this second half. They have stood firm when QPR have come forward, apart from the strike from Faurlin which hit the post.

Burnley 1-0 QPR

QPR come forward once more and Conor Washington is almost in on goal but Burnley get across to deny him and it's out for a corner.

The big test is about recruitment. Burnley will have a lot more money if they get promoted. They can keep hold of their better players and award them better contracts. You'd expect Burnley and Sean Dyche to reward the players who got them promotion.

You sense Burnley fans just want the clock to reach 90 mins right now.

QPR still looking busy trying to force an equaliser.

LAST FIVE MINUTES!

Burnley 1-0 QPR

Kevin Kilbane

Ex-Everton winger at Turf Moor, BBC Radio 5 live

I think there was a foul initially on Sam Vokes as he was going to win the header. Maybe Stephen Ward on Matt Ingram is the foul Jon Moss has called it up for. That is not a foul for me and Burnley are unlucky there.

DISALLOWED GOAL

Burnley 1-0 QPR

The crowd are on their feet again and they think it's another Burnley goal.

Sam Vokes with the header again but Jon Moss has spotted a foul in the build-up on Matt Ingram.

Into the last 10 minutes.

Burnley 1-0 QPR

Burnley almost put the seal on this victory but Matt Ingram in the QPR goal is there to deny them.

Scott Arfield's left-foot shot is stopped by Ingram's outstretched leg on the goal line from only 10 yards out.

Burnley have been able to get up the pitch more and get the ball into their strikers in the second half. It's not been a vintage performance by any means from Burnley but they have been able to cause QPR problems in the second half. They have stayed well organised and disciplined. Everyone knows their roles.

Burnley 1-0 QPR

That unbeaten run Kevin Kilbane mentioned just now will stretch to 22 matches for Burnley if they avoid defeat in this one.

It would also go past the run of 21 matches that fellow challengers Brighton set at the start of this season.

Finally a change for Burnley.

Andre Gray makes way for Ashley Barnes in attack. Not been one of Gray's more successful afternoons, but he did force the free-kick that's led to Sam Vokes' all important 14th league goal of the season as it stands.

Burnley's unbeaten run is a tremendous achievement. They've come good at the right time. You wondered if the draws would come back to haunt them but they have been grinding out wins. It has been a great turnaround from Sean Dyche since Christmas.

Burnley 1-0 QPR

Double change from QPR to use up all their substitutions.

Off goes the impressive Michael Petrasso and Nasser El Khayati is on in his place. Sebastian Polter is replaced by Ben Gladwin up front.

No changes yet from Burnley.

It is going to be nervy and edgy. Burnley need to get Andre Gray in the game because he has come to life in the second half. He has been holding up the ball well and stretching the QPR defence with his pace.

HITS THE WOODWORK

Burnley 1-0 QPR

Well, QPR are still going for it here.

Alejandro Faurlin strikes the post with an effort from a left-foot drive on the edge of the D of the penalty area.

Tom Heaton wasn't getting there, but the ball was swinging away and off the right side of the post if you're of a Burnley persuasion.

With Middlesbrough and Brighton playing each other on Saturday remember, victory is enough for Burnley to be guaranteed promotion.

It will be difficult for QPR to get themselves back in this game and open up a defence which is very rigid. Burnley do not over-expose themselves when they attack.

"There's only one Sam Vokes" chant the Burnley fans.

He could be the toast of east Lancashire come 24 or so minutes time.

The relief is palpable around the crowd and the Burnley fans.

QPR will feel a bit stunned by that having given a decent account of themselves in this one. Conor Washington is on for Junior Hoilett as Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink looks for an equaliser.

What a moment. It is a good ball in from Jones and it is anticipation from Sam Vokes. He gets across Clint Hill and lets the pace on the ball do the work. He was injured when Burnley got promoted two years ago and that is a great moment for him. It has been coming.
