Is Brentford vs Swansea on TV today? Kick-off time, channel and how to watch Championship play-off final

Brentford and Swansea City head to London and Wembley Stadium on Saturday, both desperate for victory to earn promotion to the Premier League.

The Bees came third in the table, three points away from earning an automatic spot in the top flight, with the Swans one place but seven points back in the table.

In the semis, Thomas Frank’s side overcame Bournemouth despite a first-leg defeat, while for Steve Cooper and his Welsh outfit it was a tough and tight two-legged affair which they squeezed through past Barnsley.

These two clubs met at the semi-final stage of the play-offs last year with Brentford winning on that occasion, before defeat in the final to Fulham consigned them to another year in the second tier – now they’ll be hoping to go one better.
