LONDON, April 17 (Reuters) - Brighton and Hove Albion were promoted to the Premier League after Huddersfield Town were held to a 1-1 draw by Derby County in the Championship on Monday.

Brighton earlier beat Wigan Athletic 2-1 to move seven points clear at the top and Huddersfield's failure to defeat Derby confirmed that the south-coast club will return to the top flight after a 34-year absence.
