Aitor Karanka’s side drew 1-1 with Brighton on Saturday, a result which was enough to secure a second-placed finish in the Championship and automatic promotion

Middlesbrough secured promotion to the Premier League on Saturday, as they drew 1-1 with 10-man Brighton and Hove Albion at the Riverside Stadium.

Aitor Karanka’s men knew that a point would guarantee a second-placed finish, and automatic promotion, but they looked set to take all three when Christian Stuani opened the scoring in the 19th minute.

Dale Stephens hit back to give Brighton – who themselves needed to win to overtake Boro – hope of pipping Boro to the post, as he headed in from a deep free-kick.

However, Stephens was then sent off for a high tackle on Gaston Ramirez, which left the Uruguayan with a horrific gash on his leg, and required both a stretcher and oxygen.

Middlesbrough have been playing Championship football since their relegation in 2009, and will take part in a Premier League that has been significantly enriched by the 2016-17 television deal, which stands at a staggering £5.136 billion.
