A jubilant Reading manager Brian McDermott celebrated his "best moment in football" as the Royals sealed promotion to the Barclays Premier League with a 1-0 win over Nottingham Forest.

A Mikele Leigertwood goal 10 minutes from time earned Reading a return ticket to the big time four years after they were relegated. Combined with West Ham's draw at Bristol City, their win ensures them a top-two finish. They sit three points clear of Southampton with two games left to play in the title race.

A delighted McDermott said: "This is my best moment in football. My worst was on the pitch at Wembley on May 30 (last year's play-off final defeat to Swansea). We are in the Premier League now and I can celebrate for the next two months. I need to get away for a while in the summer and have a break."
