Michael Kightly said: “I think it’s a bigger achievement, to be tipped fourth favourites to go down, and then win promotion - with Wolves we were expected to be promoted, and I obviously enjoyed that moment thoroughly, but I’ve really enjoyed this one.”

Tom Heaton: “It’s incredible, I couldn’t be happier, it’s just a fantastic day, it’s difficult to put into words, my best day in football by a country mile.”

Ashley Barnes: “The best feeling ever - promotion! There’s that word you’ve been waiting for us to say!

We're going up!

“It’s fantastic, and we’ll enjoy the celebrations now. I’m speechless, it’s what I came here for.”

Jason Shackell: “It’s unreal, it’s been an incredible season and the lads are buzzing, it’s been a great feeling and now we can really enjoy the hard work we’ve put in.”

David Jones: “It’s got to be up there as the best moment in my career, it’s just sinking in really. It’s been looming for a couple of weeks, but we just wanted to get over the line and did it with a great performance.”

Ben Mee: “It’s an incredible moment, I got a bit emotional at the end when the gaffer was talking - we’ve put so much into this season, and it’s finally come to light. It’s amazing.”
