Portsmouth have confirmed promotion to League One.

:00:21.:00:23.

And Brighton have virtually clinched promotion to the Premier League.

These were the Seagull fans pouring onto the pitch

:00:27.:00:30.

They'd seen Brighton defeat Wigan 2-1.

of English football for the first time in 34 years.

years. An unforgettable, forgettable day for the supporters of the club,

:01:32.:01:34.

who have had some difficult moments in recent years. It all came good

this afternoon. For those guys, who have helped this club and put them

back on the map, it is the first step on a long road, but I am so

:01:46.:01:52.

I feel very emotional about it. Buzzing, happy, emotional. All the

:01:53.:02:00.

emotions I can think of, could not have imagined it any better. Coming
