Derby 1 win away from return to Premier League after reaching Championship playoff final
DERBY, England - Derby is one victory away from a return to the Premier League after a six-year absence thanks to a 4-1 win over Brighton in second-tier League Championship playoffs on Sunday.
Derby won the playoff semifinal 6-2 on aggregate and will play either Wigan or Queens Park Rangers at Wembley Stadium on May 24.
It means a return to Wembley for Derby manager Steve McClaren, the former England coach who was fired by the national team in 2007 after barely a year in charge.
Wigan and QPR are tied 0-0 after the first leg.
Derby last played in the Premier League in 2008, when it was relegated with a record-low 11 points.
