Brentford and Swansea City meet in the Championships play-off final at Wembley on Saturday, with the winner heading for the prestige and the riches of England’s top flight.
The Bees will look to 32-goal striker Ivan Toney to fire them into the Premier League, having reached this stage last year before suffering heartache in the final against Fulham.
They beat Swansea in the semis last term to reach Wembley – now they must do the same at Wembley to make good on the steady progression which has been seen at the club over the past few seasons.
However, Steve Cooper and the Swans will be keen to upset the party once more, after a fantastic season of their own saw the Welsh side end the campaign just one place behind Brentford.
