London: Newcastle United, already assured of a place back in the Premier League next season, clinched the Championship (second division) title with a 2-0 win at Plymouth Argyle.

First-half goals from Andy Carroll and Wayne Routledge gave Newcastle, relegated from the top flight last season, the win which secured the crown with two games left to cap a dominant season which has seen them lose four times and accrue 98 points.

The victory also consigned Plymouth to relegation and a place in League One next season.
