While there was pleasure for West Brom who gained a fifth promotion to the highest flight, it was despair for Brentford who had closed a 10-point hole on Bilic’s team and appeared like incomes automated promotion earlier than consecutive losses.

They will meet Swansea City who extremely crept into the playoffs on purpose distinction with a 4-1 win at Reading mixed with a 4-1 residence loss for Nottingham Forest towards Stoke City.
