    Swansea v Brentford

    Two massive games coming up against Brentford, with the prospect of a Wembley play-off final for the winner over the two legs, and a huge 170 million prize at the end of it for the best team.
    Brentford lost their last two games after a fantastic 8 straight wins and as a result failed to get an automatic promotion spot. Hopefully this will effect them psychologically and we can capitalise on that.
    Unfortunately all of the play off games are exclusively live on Sky Sports in this country, so no Swans TV for season ticket holders. If you havenít got Sky youíre out of luck.
    There are injury worries for Routledge and Van der Hoorn, with Steve Cooper leaving it until the last minute for them to prove their fitness.
    Naughton serves the last of his 3 match ban tomorrow. Byers and Rodon are still out injured.

    Whatever happens today we must applaud the players for getting us this far. With a young squad of loanees and Academy players, sprinkled with a few old heads and a rookie head coach guiding them, we’ve managed to reach the play-offs, no easy feat in this very tough division.
    Not only that, we’ve done it without key central defenders Rodon and Hoorn who’ve been missing for months with long term injuries.
    Another key defender, Naughton, serves the last of a 3 match ban, but will be available for the second leg. Hoorn, on the comeback trail, is doubtful as is Routledge, both will get late fitness tests. Byers is still injured, so is first choice goalkeeper Woodman.

    Good luck to our team today, the Jack Army are rooting for you.
    Shame we can’t be there to be the 12th man.
    Memories of the last semi final play-off match against Forest at the Liberty, 16 May 2011, come flooding back, with that late Darren Pratley wonder goal from the half way line making it 3-1.

    Hi guys, here we are then, crunch time, and what will be a massive day, and in the future will be a highlight in the annals of the history of SCFC.
    A time to savour and enjoy as these peaks do not come round to often.
    Come on the Swans, make us proud again!!

    Ayew 81, great shot for the goal, he also missed a penalty.
    Henry sent off on 65í for sliding tackle on Roberts.

    Brentford go down to their third straight defeat as Swans Ayew missed a penalty but made amends later with the only goal.
    Brentford had their chances but squandered them, you could see that they were a quality side though and the tie is not over by any means.
