Swansea City have taken the advantage in the Sky Bet Championship playoff clash against Brentford.

The Swans were facing their more fancied rivals in the first leg at home, but came away with a one goal lead.

Andre Ayew scored a stunning goal to give the Welsh team another chance to get back into the Premier League.

The Ghanian had also missed a penalty earlier in the game, but he redeemed himself with a great goal to seal a first leg advantage for his team.

Everything is set up for a nervy and tense second leg at Griffin Park, which will take place on Wednesday.

Swansea were riding high after sealing a top six spot on the very last day of the season, while Brentford had squandered two chances to seal automatic promotion to the Premier League.
