BRENTFORD pummelled Swansea to lay their Wembley demons to rest and win promotion to the Premier League.

An Ivan Toney penalty put the Bees in front early on after Bryan Mbeumo was brought down by Freddie Woodman.

And Emiliano Marcondes then gave them a second goal inside 20 minutes.

To make matters worse for Swansea, Jay Fulton was sent off in the second half for a dangerous challenge.

Unlike a year ago against Fulham, Thomas Frank's men more than rose to the occasion to reach the Premier League for the first time.

    FT: BRENTFORD 2-0 SWANSEA 

    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!

    90+2. Emiliano Marcondes trots off to a rousing ovation from the Brentford fans and is replaced by fellow Dane Mads Bidstrup. "We are going up" is the cry from the Brentford support.

    90. There will be a minimum of six minutes of additional time. A little bit more nail biting for the Brentford fans to do.

    89. A grimmer of a chance for Dhanda but, under pressure, he slices wide from the edge of the box after Brentford had only half-cleared their lines.

    87. Roberts launches one of his long throws into the area but Pinnock deals with it emphatically. That surely is that.

    70. Janelt goes into the book for diving in on Roberts.

    66. Fulton walks and so do Swansea's play-off hopes. He catches Jensen from behind and the red card comes straight out. Looks like he might have slipped but there's no VAR to help Fulton out.

    RED CARD FOR SWANSEA!!!!

    62. A Brentford corner causes problems in the Swansea area. Pinnock's shot clatters off his own man in Jansson. That might have been sneaking in.

    58. Could have been game over as Canos' cross finds Mbuemo 12 yards out. However, the Brentford man leans back as he shoots and sees his effort fly miles over the bar. At the other end, Lowe swivels but fires just wide from a tight angle.

    54. Marcondes is caught by a stray arm from Hourihane as the pair contest a header and falls to the floor. Hourihane lets Marcondes know his thoughts on that in no uncertain terms.

    49. Lowe cuts in from the left and skips past a couple of Brentford players before sending his shot high and wide. This is much better from Swansea, though.

    47. What a chance for Swansea. Roberts' cross from the right is met by the diving Ayew but his header flashes wide. That would have been the perfect start to the second half for the Swans.

    HT: BRENTFORD 2-0 SWANSEA 

    Brentford are 45 minutes away from the Premier League.

    The Bees flew out of the traps and went in front in the 10th minute through Ivan Toney’s penalty after Freddie Woodman had brought down Bryan Mbuemo. 

    It was 2-0 just 10 minutes later when Emiliano Marcondes slotted home after a blistering counter-attack.

    Ivan Toney then saw a shot crash off the bar and bounce down onto the line moments later with a stunning volley.

    Swansea have offered very little and Steve Cooper may well make changes at the break.

    45. Hourihane's free-kick causes problems for Raya. His punch isn't strong enough and it comes off Ayew's head and clips the top of the bar. Two minutes of additional time will be played at the end of this half.

    41. Guehi is the most relieved man in Wembley. His header back towards Woodman is weak and Mbuemo pounces but scuffs his shot wide.
