A place in the Premier League is at stake on Saturday as Brentford and Swansea City face off at Wembley.
Having beaten Bournemouth and Barnsley respectively in the play-off semis, the pair meet in the final – having met at the last-four stage last year, with the Bees triumphing before losing the game which mattered most against Fulham.
Brentford finished third and Swansea fourth in the league table, arguably positioning them as the rightful contenders for the final promotion spot at the end of the season.
But it’s all or nothing at this stage for two clubs who feel they belong in the big time for different reasons, and who both went close to reaching that stage one year ago.
Here’s everything you need to know ahead of the Championship play-off final.
