BREAKING: Brentford gain promotion back to Premier League after 74 years

Brentford have gained promotion to the Premier League for the first time since 1947 after defeating Swansea 2-0 in the Championship play-off final on Saturday.

First half goals from Ivan Toney and Emiliano Marcondes secured the win for Brentford against a 10-man Swansea.

Toney opened scoring from the penalty in the 10th minute before Marcondes made it 2-0 on 20 minutes.

Swansea were reduced to 10 men after Jay Fulton was sent off for a foul on Mathias Jensen.

The Bees, as Brentford are fondly called, were beaten in last season’s second-tier play-off final by Fulham, who ran out 2-1 winners after extra time.

But the pain of Brentford’s last visit to this stadium turned to elation as they finally tasted play-off success at the 10th time of asking.

Brentford captain Pontus Janssen said: “I’m so proud of this squad – we were here last year [when they lost to Fulham] with a big disappointment and it’s been a hard year but we finally got here.

They now join Championship winners Norwich and Watford as the three teams that gained promotion to the Premier League ahead of next season.

The victory is worth a minimum of £170m to the west London club.
