Reading's Federici thrilled to gain promotion to Premier League

Adam Federici was over the moon as he helped Reading gain promotion to the English Premier League on Tuesday night.

The Royals beat Nottingham Forest 1-0 at the Madejski Stadium to ensure qualification to the top flight with two matches remaining in the Championship campaign.

The achievement had the Australian goalkeeper, who has played all 44 league matches so far this season, overjoyed after the match.

"It's unbelievable, it puts the cherry on the cake. To see all the fans on the pitch is fantastic," he told the BBC.

"We always believed and we knew what we could achieve as a group."

The victory allowed Reading to remain three points clear of second-placed Southampton and eight ahead of third-placed West Ham United, ensuring automatic promotion to the Premier League.
