Ipswich secured their spot in the Premier League following a resounding 4-2 win over Barnsley in the playoff final and followed that up with their best ever finish in the Premier League, coupled with a semi-final appearance in the League Cup.

Once this is secured, it is a case of clinging on for dear life for the many sides who struggle to compete with the Premier League's big boys.

Well, here is a list of nine teams who did much more than that and went on to push for top-half finishes after gaining promotion to the Premier League.

However, they only make this list on account of a superior goal difference to tenth-placed Blackburn, but Birmingham fans will not let that sully their best ever Premier League finish.

After dumping three Premier League rivals out of the cup, West Ham earned themselves a final date with Liverpool.

Securing your place in England's top tier is the Holy Grail for much of the English footballing pyramid.

Andy Cole's 34 earned him the record of most goals scored in a Premier League season by one player, a record that is now shared with the league's highest scorer in Alan Shearer and still stands to this day.
