Cauley Woodrow then levelled for the visitors in the 71st minute to set up a frantic finish, with Swansea pinned back in their own half throughout the closing minutes of the game.

The Swans, who finished fourth in the second-tier Championship, last played in the top flight in 2017-18 when the Welsh club were relegated after finishing 18th.

Earlier on Saturday, Brentford fought back from a goal down to beat 10-man Bournemouth 3-1 in the second leg and advance 3-2 on aggregate.

The Championship playoff final will be played on May 29.
