Thomas Frank vowed not to get too carried away after Brentford reached the Championship play-off final - insisting there is still a job to do as they chase their Premier League dream.

The Bees overcame Swansea’s one-goal lead from the first leg with a 3-1 win to provide a perfect send-off for Griffin Park in their final game at their home of 116 years.

Ollie Watkins struck in the 11th minute to level the semi-final on aggregate before Emiliano Marcondes put the hosts ahead in the tie four minutes later.

Bryan Mbeumo’s volley after the restart gave Brentford a two-goal cushion but they faced a nervy final 12 minutes when Rhian Brewster dragged Swansea back into the contest.

The home side were resilient at the back, though, and held on to book their spot in the Championship play-off final at Wembley - much to the delight of Frank.

“We talked about not leaving the pitch without getting to the final,” said Frank. “The message was we needed to start faster than we ever started before. And we did that.

“At 3-0 we should have been through to the final, but we made a mistake we shouldn't make. But after that they weren't really dangerous and it was nice to show the defensive side of our game.

“I am pleased and happy. It is a very nice moment and we have achieved something good. But we want to achieve something big and we are going to the final to win.”

Brentford had been on the cusp of automatic promotion following a seven-match winning run after lockdown before two defeats in the final two games cost them a place in the top two.

But the west Londoners are now just one game away from the Premier League after holding their nerve against Swansea, as they look to end their 73-year exile from the top flight.

They will face either Cardiff City of neighbours Fulham at Wembley on August 4, with Fulham leading 2-0 after the first leg, and Frank knows his side must maintain their focus.

“We have had a very good season, the best in modern times at Brentford,” he added.

“I’m proud of the players. We will go into the final with momentum and massive belief, and we will leave everything out there as well. It means a lot to me.

“I’m very pleased, very happy and I will sleep well tonight. But the next task is to win the final.”
