Bryan Mbeumo added the third goal just after halftime, before Rhian Brewster pulled one back for Swansea. The Bees moved one step closer to the Premier League with the 3-2 overall win. Seven straight wins after the COVID-19 lockdown had left promotion tantalizingly within Brentford’s grasp, before successive losses to Stoke and Barnsley forced Brentford into the playoffs.
Brentford, which is moving to a new 17,250-capacity ground, will face either Cardiff or Fulham in the Aug. 4 final at Wembley.
