"I guess you just have places that click with you and this place clicked with me".

Swansea then swarmed all over Brentford seeking a crucial lead to take into the second leg next week and got it when Ayew fired into the top corner after an intricate build-up.

Brentford boss Thomas Frank has promised the Bees will rediscover their sting after missing out on automatic promotion.

Swansea City head coach Steve Cooper was pleased with his side's 1-0 Championship play-off semi-final first leg win over Brentford but felt they should have scored more.

This marked Odour's first goal for Barnsley and opened his professional account after featuring 11 times for the Championship outfit in the 2019-2020 season. "Sometimes there is not a reason why", he conceded in his post-match press conference. You can sit down and cry, think the world is unfair and things are against you.

The match took a dramatic turn a couple of minutes after the penalty miss as Brentford's Henry was shown a red card for a rash challenge on Roberts near the right-hand touchline. They will have to improve that record if they are to win promotion.

Already-promoted Leeds had earlier beaten Charlton Athletic 4-0 to send the Londoners down to the third tier - just one of the issues resolved on a night in which 45 goals were scored in 12 fixtures, all played behind closed doors. "Honestly I don't look too much into that", he said.

"We're going to appeal this and I'm absolutely, 100% sure I will have a decision where Rico can play on Wednesday".

"I need to praise my performance staff, medical staff and the players for they way they handled the coronavirus break, in terms of both having the programmes and having the passion and dedication that everybody put into it".

The trio have amassed a stunning 56 goals between them, which makes up exactly 70% of the team's total goal tally this season, which was the highest in the division. But this is football. We are feeling good, we are hungry and focused.

Of course, the dangling of the carrot that is promotion - particularly at such a late stage - raises the expectation level of fans.

"Brentford have brought players and the other two semi-finalists are two of the most resourced squads in the league". In football, it's not only black and white - there are a lot of nuances.
