West Brom manager Tony Mowbray paid tribute to his players after they beat 10-man QPR 2-0 to clinch the Coca-Cola Championship title.

The Baggies´ goal difference meant they had effectively sealed promotion prior to their final-day visit to west London, but goals from Kim Do-heon and Chris Brunt rubber-stamped their return to the Premier League and ensured they ended the season as champions.

"This is a proud moment," said Mowbray. "When you think back to when we lost to Burnley on the opening day, we´ve come a long way and made a lot of progress."
