Brentford started the game strongly creating several opportunities. The Bees were rewarded in the early parts after grabbing two quick fire goals by Watkins and Marcondes.

Mbeumo put the game beyond Swansea after scoring Brentford’s third early in the second half.

The Jack Army got a glimmer of hope in the last ten minutes after Brewster profited from an error at the back to reduce the aggregate deficit to just one.
