Could a returning hero seal it today?

18 Apr

Brentford take on Preston North End on Friday, knowing that a win (combined with defeats for Rotherham United at Wolves and Leyton Orient at Crawley) will be enough to see promotion from League One confirmed.

But whatever they do is irrelevant (our title aspirations aside, of course) as long as Brentford win.

As long as Brentford win”. It sounds so simple on paper and, in theory it should it be.
