Kieran Dowell's double either side of the interval and late strikes from Xavier Quintilla and Teemu Pukki sealed the hosts' coronation in style.

But the real action was at the bottom of the table where Wednesday's goalless draw in the early kick-off against Nottingham Forest meant they would be relegated if Derby secured at least a point at Swansea.

But Wayne Rooney's men slumped to a 2-1 defeat - their sixth in a row - setting up a crunch Pride Park clash between the Rams and Wednesday next weekend, when the visitors must win to stand a chance of staying up.

Derby led through a 48th-minute header from Tom Lawrence but Morgan Whittaker levelled just past the hour mark and Connor Roberts struck the winner three minutes later for the Welsh side.

The relegation conundrum is further complicated by Rotherham, who boosted their hopes of staying up after Lewis Wing's late equaliser in a 1-1 with Blackburn.

The point for the Millers, after Adam Armstrong's early goal for the visitors, means their own fate is back in their own hands, although they need at least three points from their last two away games at Luton and Cardiff to stand any chance.

Uche Ikpeazu's fourth-minute effort gave Wycombe a 1-0 win over Bournemouth and ensured Gareth Ainsworth's men also avoided relegation, although they need a mathematical miracle to extend their stay in the second tier.

Peterborough fought back from 3-0 down to grab a dramatic draw and secure promotion with a penalty from Jonson Clarke-Harris deep into stoppage time.

Imps midfielder Anthony Scully broke the deadlock on the half-hour, with Jorge Grant adding another from the penalty spot just before half-time.

Scully got his second in the 53rd minute to seemingly leave Posh's promotion party on hold.

However, Siriki Dembele started the fightback before Clarke-Harris set up a tense finale with a 75th-minute free-kick - and then kept his cool from the penalty spot deep into stoppage time.
