Championship Play-Off Final – LIVE!

Brentford made it 10th time lucky as they beat Swansea 2-0 in the Championship play-off final to reach the Premier League for the first time.

Goals from Ivan Toney and Emiliano Marcondes saw the Bees finally break their play-off hoodoo after all nine of their previous attempts had ended in failure.

It was swift redemption for Thomas Frank's side, back at Wembley Stadium just nine months after losing to Fulham in last season's delayed final.

There was to be no repeat of that heartbreak for the Bees, who in securing promotion will become the 50th different club to play in the Premier League.

They also ended the so-called curse of the red and white stripes, which has seen teams in Brentford's colours feature in 33 play-off campaigns without achieving promotion. Lincoln, playing Blackpool in Sunday's League One final, will surely have taken note.
