Brentford promoted to Premier League for the first time since the 1946-47 campaign



The Bees will be playing top-flight football next season for the first time since the 1946-47 campaign. The next question Frank will have to consider is whether Brentford can keep hold of all of their stars, such as Mbeumo and Toney for the following season..

Swansea, who fall at the final hurdle, will return to Championship football next campaign and will have to wait for their return to the Premier League, after being relegated in 2018..

Brentford finally succeed in their 10th Football League play-offs attempt! A first-half penalty from Toney and Marcondes’ finish put the Bees two goals to the good at half-time. Fulton’s second-half dismissal for a two-footed lunge on Jensen then made Swansea’s task even harder and they never recovered to get back into the final. With Raya rarely being called upon at the other end, Frank’s men coasted to a 2-0 win in the play-off final to confirm their Premier League status for next season.
