Hull City clinch promotion back to the Championship after victory over Lincoln City... as club poke fun at botched European Super League plot with tongue-in-cheek confirmation of return to the second tier at the first time of asking

Mallik Wilks' late penalty secured Hull's promotion to the Sky Bet Championship and edged closer to the League One title in a 2-1 win at Lincoln.

Josh Magennis put Hull into an early lead, only for the visitors to be pegged back by Lewis Montsma's effort.

But just when Hull feared a frustrating draw, up popped Wilks with the winner from the penalty spot to seal their place in the second tier.

Peterborough's 1-0 win at Charlton, however, meant that Hull were not able to pop the champagne on a title victory.
