Yeovil hold off Brentford to secure Championship dream
Brentford 1-2 Yeovil Town: Match Review
Yeovil Town will play in the Npower Championship next season after beating Brentford 2-1 in the League One play-off final.
First-half goals from Paddy Madden and James Hayter proved to be the difference, with Harlee Dean's second-half header proving to be nothing more than a consolation at Wembley.
Yeovil were quickest out of the blocks, and made the advantage pay when Madden scored a stunning 20-yard effort with the outside of his right foot.
Hayter doubled the advantage just before half-time, scoring from close range after Dan Burn had nodded a corner back across goal.
The interval sparked the Bees into life however, and Dean cut the advantage early in the period with a free header from ten-yards.
Uwe Rosler's side continued to press and dominated possession for the final half hour, but couldn't convert as man-of-the match Marek Stech made a number of fine saves.
His best was to deny Clayton Donaldson from another corner, with Bradley Wright--Phillips unable to bundle home the rebound under pressure.
Sam Saunders breathed life into Brentford following his introduction off the bench, but couldn't create a goal that would have forced extra-time.
Gary Johnson's side now move to the second tier for the first time in their history, whilst Brentford are left to reflect on what might have been having missed a penalty to gain promotion in the final minute of the regular season.
