Bees PROMOTED to Premier League as Toney and Emiliano crush ten-man Swans


At the 10th time of asking, Brentford have won a play-off final and will be playing top-flight football for the first time since 1947.

It was a thoroughly deserved win for the Bees who came flying out of the traps and took the lead in the 10th minute through their talisman Ivan Toney. The striker scored from the spot after Freddie Woodman had brought down Bryan Mbuemo.

The London side were in dreamland 10 minutes later when they made it 2-0 when, after a blistering counter-attack, Mads Roerslev picked out Emiliano Marcondes to slot home.

Toney then saw a shot crash off the crossbar moments later.

Swansea improved after the restart but when Jay Fulton was dismissed in the 66th minute for catching Mathias Jensen from behind, it was pretty much game over.

Heartbreak for the Swans but pure delight for Brentford.

After 74 years in the making, the Bees are going up!
