Mokotjo’s Brentford one win away from promotion


Brentford FC are a win away from realising their Premier League (PL) football dream as they beat Swansea City 3-1 to book their place in the Sky Bet Championship Play-Off Final on Wednesday evening in what was their last game at Griffin Park.

Kamohelo Mokotjo’s Brentford came into the game trailing 1-0 after Sunday’s semi-final second leg but showed character to win 3-2 on aggregate, signing off at Griffin Park, their home of 116 years, in emphatic fashion before moving to a new stadium next season.

Despite ‘The Bees’ coach Thomas Frank stating that Mokotjo is a ‘reliable’ player and ‘adds so much to the group’, the Bafana Bafana international hasn’t seen much action of late after signing a contract until the end of the season.

“We need The General’s experience, coolness and passing ability as we head into the last part of the season,” Frank said recently.

But, Mokotjo was not part of the matchday squad for the Swansea clash and his future at the club remains unclear at the moment. The defensive midfielder played 25 games in the 2019/20 Championship season, with two assists and a goal.

Brentford will face either Cardiff City or neighbours Fulham on Tuesday, August 4 at Wembley Stadium.

Fulham are in the driving seat with a 2-0 lead heading into the second leg of their semi-final tie against Cardiff on Thursday evening at Craven Cottage stadium, London city.
