beIN SPORTS MATCH CENTRE: Cardiff City 2-1 Nottingham Forest

WRAP: Wolves claims title, Sunderland relegated again

Aron Gunnarsson turned home the winner in the 74th minute to secure a vital triumph that moves Neil Warnock's men a point ahead of Fulham, which has played an additional match.

Forest midfielder Liam Bridcutt had earlier netted at close range to cancel out Sean Morrison's first-half header, but the Bluebirds responded to secure a second successive victory ahead of Wednesday's trip to seventh-placed Derby County.

Should it prevail in that match, Cardiff would then only need a solitary win from their remaining two fixtures against Hull City and Reading to end a four-season absence from the Premier League.
