Andre Ayew’s Swansea City English Premier League qualification dream shattered

1 min read

Brentford beat Swansea City 3-1 in the second-leg of the Championship semi-final play-off at Griffin Park Wednesday evening to book a ticket to the final scheduled for first week in August.

After a slender 1-0 defeat in the first-leg, the hosts showed their intention early in the encounter as Ollie Watkins finished off a swift counter-attack for the opener and Emiliano Marcondes nodded in Brentford’s second from Said Benrahma’s pass, to record a 2 nil lead just in four minutes.

Bryan Mbeumo’s well-struck second-half volley from Rico Henry’s left-wing cross put the game beyond Swansea.

A Pontus Jansson error let in Rhian Brewster to reduce Swansea’s aggregate deficit to one. Brentford thus, quality on 3-2 aggregate.

Brentford will lock horns with the winner of Fulham-Cardiff City game on 4 August, 2020 at Wembley to fight for a slot into the Premier League.

Ayew netted 18 goals in 47 appearances for Swansea City this season.
