3-1 in second leg: Brentford dreams of Premier League
Is it possible to return after 73 years? FC Brentford scored the final for promotion to the Premier League in Wembley, London, on a 3-1 win in the second leg of the play-off semi-final against Swansea City, giving the venerable Griffin Park a more than worthy farewell.
Swansea’s narrow first leg in Wales was won 1-0 by a goal scored by top goalscorer André Ayew. Therefore, the starting position was clear: the away goal rule does not exist in the playoffs, so the Bees had to win at least one goal difference in order to at least get into overtime.
