NORWICH, England (AP) - Norwich is one game away from returning to the Premier League after beating 10-man Ipswich 3-1 on Saturday to reach the League Championships playoff final.

After a 1-1 draw in the first leg, Norwich advanced 4-2 on aggregate and will face Middlesbrough in the Wembley final on May 25.

After a tense first half, the game turned when Ipswich defender Christophe Berra was sent off for handball on the line and Wes Hoolahan slotted in the resulting penalty after 49 minutes.

Ipswich equalized on the hour when defender Tommy Smith converted from close range but Norwich went back ahead through Nathan Redmond.

Cameron Jerome rolled in the third to seal the win, giving Norwich the chance to return to the Premier League after one season in the second division.
