Cardiff City manager Malky Mackay revealed his delight at his side's overdue promotion to the Premier League.

The Bluebirds sealed a place in English football's top flight following their goalless draw with Charlton Athletic at the Cardiff City Stadium on Tuesday night, with their closest rivals both faltering.

Mackay's side, who hold a seven-point lead over second-placed Hull City, now have three games to ensure they finish top of the league and win the Championship title outright.

The former Watford boss said on their triumph: "There has been a lot of disappointment in the last few years, but a great deal of money has gone into this football club over the last four years and I’m delighted for everyone involved.

“As a manager it’s about looking after a group of people and asking them to come back time and again. That is why I am so proud and pleased with what has happened."

Cardiff's promotion comes a year after they were thrashed 5-0 in the play-off semi-finals by eventual winners West Ham United. 

The Welsh side were on the fringes of earning promotion on two separate occasions under former manager Dave Jones, but suffered play-off heartbreak against Blackpool and Reading respectively.

Cardiff need just one win from their final three games against Burnley, Bolton Wanderers and Hull City to reach the Promised Land in the best possible fashion.
