Fans of Barnsley show their support during the Sky Bet Championship match.

Despite being signed to Premier League side Fulham in 2008, Etheridge never made the line-up for the London club.

Neil Warnock says his Cardiff City side will "ruffle a few feathers" in the Premier League next season.

However, frustration soon turned to elation when news filtered through that promotion rivals Fulham had fallen to a surprise 3-1 defeat against Birmingham City - cementing Cardiff's ascension back into the Premier League after a four-year absence. Birmingham bagged a breakaway goal to put an end to Fulham's hopes and send Cardiff up automatically.

Neil Warnock's men have been one of the surprise packages of the season and sit in second place in the standings ahead of the final game of the campaign. "It's creating history. I'm very proud of my national team, we've got to the Asian Cup for the first time and I'm the first south-east Asian player to get promoted and, hopefully, to play in the Premier League next season".

Fulham join Aston Villa, Middlesbrough and Derby County in the playoffs, which kick off on May 11.

Already achieving promotion, Newcastle United dispatched Cardiff City again, this time 2-0.

"I've got a great bunch of lads", Warnock said.

Last season, the clubs met twice in the Championship. It's such a fabulous achievement, because nobody gave us a chance.

Phil Parkinson's team took the lead through Adam LeFondre in the 67th minute, only for Forest to quickly hit back with goals from Ben Osborn and Jack Colback, leaving Bolton on the brink of a quick return to League One.
