‘Gonna destroy the Premier League’ – Many Brentford fans react as key man makes key contribution

Brentford have won promotion to the Premier League for the first time in their history, after beating Swansea City 2-0 in the play-off final at Wembley this afternoon.

The Bees came flying out the blocks and found two early goals, with Swansea being reduced to 10 men in the second half on what was a frustrating afternoon for the Welsh club.

On the big day for Brentford, their big player stepped up. Ivan Toney netted his 33rd goal of the season from the penalty spot on 10 minutes, to put his side 1-0 up.

Emiliano Marcondes rounded off a swift counter-attack to double their lead soon after, and Toney then rattled the crossbar with an exceptional volley which nearly made it 3-0.

The Bees’ promotion to the Premier League increases their chances of retaining his services heading into next season, but interest is still likely to come around.
