Luton and Barnsley promoted to the Championship after Portsmouth slip up against Peterborough

Luton and Barnsley sealed promotion to the Championship without them kicking a ball as Portsmouth and Sunderland both slipped to defeat.

Pompey, who were hoping to close the gap on the second-placed Tykes to a single point going into the final day on Saturday, fell two goals behind at home to Peterborough.

Lee Tomlin swept in his first goal since January and Ivan Toney powered in a header to double Posh’s lead.

Portsmouth hauled themselves level with a deflected effort from Ben Close and Christian Burgess’ close-range finish, only for Toney to rifle in a 75th-minute winner.
