George Byers' goal earns point against Wolves at Liberty Stadium to seal promotion to Division 1

George Byers' equaliser in a 2-2 draw with Wolverhampton Wanderers earned Swansea City the point they needed to secure the Division 2 title and promotion to Division 1. 

The third-placed visitors threatened to spoil the party at the Liberty Stadium when Daniel Armstrong gave them a 25th-minute lead, but Oli McBurnie equalised on the stroke of half-time with a superb volley.

Duckens Nazon restored Wolves' lead immediately after the interval but McBurnie set up Byers to level again. The visitors had Connor Levingston sent off late on as the Swans held on.
