The Blades stayed in touch with Reading for most of the season but a minor blip in February and March where they won just one game in eight looked like it might threaten their runners-up spot and automatic promotion before seven matches unbeaten in the final stretch saw them comfortably home.
Here are Chris's thoughts on the men from Bramall LaneÃ¢â‚¬Â¦
"IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m delighted for them. They have been there or thereabouts for the last few years and theyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve had their disappointments but they always looked like they would make it this time.
"They were desperate to get promotion and I just think in this day and age to have a manager like Neil Warnock who is in charge of his home club and has always been a massive fan, to guide that team to promotion in the Premiership is a real nice touch.
"They have certainly worked hard enough to get into the Premiership and IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m sure they will look forward to every minute of it."
