The Brentford squad missed the opportunity to advance to second in the Championship table, after losing to Stoke City.
Brentford fell to Stoke City with a clean goal, today, Saturday, in the 45th round of the Championship, which gave Leeds the title.
Leeds United was the first to qualify for the Premier League this season after losing the West Bromwich Albion on Friday from Huddersfield Town.
Only one round remains until the end of the tournament, in which the first and second place qualifiers qualify directly to Premier League, while clubs from the third to sixth games play “off of” the defeated exit system to determine the third qualified team.
West Bromwich is second in the Championship ranking table with 82 points, and Brentford rival him for the second place and qualify directly for the Premier League with 81 points.
West Bromwich, which includes the Egyptian star Ahmed Hegazy, has 3 chances to qualify directly to Premier League for the next season 2020-2021.
West Bromwich plays in the last round against Queens Park Rangers, while Brentford meet Barnsley.
West Bromwich beat Queens Park Rangers without looking at the outcome of the Brentford match is the first opportunity for Hegazy comrades to qualify directly for the Premier League.
In the event that West Bromwich tied in the closing round, Hegazy and his team mates could qualify in the event of a tie or a loss of Brentford from Barnsley.
A loss from Queens Park Rangers in the final round, West Bromwich may qualify for the Premier League, but only if Brentford loses from Barnsley.
