Charlton sealed promotion to the npower Championship as Bradley Wright-Phillips fired them to a 1-0 win at Carlisle.

Wright-Phillips struck after 76 nervous minutes at Brunton Park to ensure the League One leaders now have an unbridgeable 10-point advantage over third-placed Sheffield Wednesday with three games to play.

They will have to wait a little longer to secure the title after second-placed Sheffield United came from behind to beat 10-man Leyton Orient 3-1. Kevin Lisbie put Orient ahead at Bramall Lane but Lee Williamson and Michael Doyle replied and there was no way back for the Londoners after Ryan Dickson was sent off. Ched Evans completed the Blades' win late on.
