Back In The Big Time
The Championship season proper belatedly came to an exciting conclusion last night, with the dramatic battle for automatic promotion to the Premier League going into injury time. For a period in the first half it looked like neither West Brom or Brentford wanted to join Leeds in climbing into the top flight, both trailing at home.
Parity was restored at the Hawthorns and Griffin Park, chances came and went for both sides to grasp the initiative and secure the second spot, but as Slaven Bilic poured men forward for a winner, news filtered through that Barnsley had scored an unlikely winner in West London. A defensive shape was swiftly adopted, and following a few tense moments after the final whistle waiting for conformation that Brentford had been beaten, the celebrations kicked off on the pitch in the West Midlands.
Swansea, Cardiff and Fulham will now battle it out with Brentford in the Play-Offs for the remaining promotion spot, and the riches and challenges of top flight football.
