Brentford to battle Swansea for last Premier League spot


This year’s Championship play-off will be played between Swansea and Brentford.

Swansea were held to a 1-1 draw by Barnsley on Saturday.

However, the Welsh club had defeated their opponents 1-0 in the first leg of the semi-final tie.

Matt Grimes scored in the 39th minute, before Cauley Woodrow levelled for the visitors in the 71st minute to set up a frantic finish.

The Championship playoff final will be played on May 29.
