Club putting on free coaches for the fans - hpoefully we'll get a good crowd up there. Tough tough match - not impossible to overturn the first leg defeat, but very hard. Can imagine Boro will go about it much the same way, tough tackling trying to stop us playing, and sitting back hoping for a goal on the break. Thought they were very lucky to come away with anything from Friday, but they should be able to see it through.

Quite calm about this game, not many nerves really. No one expecting us to turn it around, so hopefully we are free to play our own game, and see where it takes us. Still gutted about Boro's goal last minute.

Potentially our goodbye game to Warbs and Pritch. Both have been absolutely amazing for us this season, will be welcomed back with open arms whenever they visit.

Good luck tomorrow Brentford, you dirty Northern posh Zone 4 bastards.

I think you're going to be needing a new team bus though, whatever the result.

Hard to see Brentford getting the win they need, although there's less pressure on them so who knows what might happen?

Good gesture that by the club - should get more fans travelling up there.

Can't see Brentford getting anything personally, but it'll be interesting to watch as they have absolutely nothing to lose.

'Best atmosphere I've seen here in a while' says the commentator.

The camera goes around, and everyone is just simply clapping their hands to that shite that Norwich used to have as their goal music...

:ffs:

Lee Tomlin - 1-0.

Cracking finish from the edge of the box, but shouldn't be allowed that sort of space in that position.

Game over. Really struggled to see where the Brentford threat was coming from even before that opener - doubt Boro will break sweat seeing this one out now.

HT - and still yet to see any sort of attacking threat from Brentford.

A mix of a great shape and defensive display from M'boro - but Brentford have lacked ideas and are playing without any real tempo when on the ball.

Hopefully they put in a 2nd half performance much like they did last week - otherwise this is going to be another boring 45 minutes for the neutral.

Tomlin has certainly improved from that fat, lazy, unfit bastard that I seen before in a Posh shirt.

He has exceptional talent.

Unbelievable football.

1 touch stuff in and around the box, and Adomah caps off well.

Wembley bound.

Brentford have had a fantastic season but they've been completely outclassed here.

5-1 on aggregate and can see 1 or 2 more before the FT whistle.

Not sure if Brentford's poor showing is down to the fact they simply haven't shown up, or because Boro have just been far far better. Painfully one sided tonight. Fair play to Boro though, they've been excellent tonight.

I hope Middlesborough fans don't pitch invade so Mark Warburton can have a proper send off from the Brentford fans.

What a fantastic job that man has done.

Massive respect.

Thought Leadbitter was easily the MOTM myself. But then the majority of the Boro team had really good games tonight.
Probably me being biased with him being ex-City etc, but yes - I agree, Leadbitter was superb, both defensively and offensively.

A fantastic passing range on him, and a very good break up player as well.

The complete midfielder.

Reminds me of us last season where we outclassed Brighton only to mess up in the final, be interesting to see how Boro do but i think they will make it.

Outclassed tonight yes but I don't think we were in the first leg. Very unfortunate to lose that imo.

Regardless of how this went, what an amazing season we've had. Great send off for Warbs at the end, we'll miss him lots. Same with Pritch.

Exciting summer for us, try to build on this season and see what we can do. 3-4 quality additions and hopefully we'll be able to follow Bournemouth into the PL.

Well done Boro, much more clinical than us in the final third, deserved over the two legs. Typical play off results for us! The run continues... Could have been so different had we won or even drawn the first leg, as I feel we deserved to. Shame we never really turned up tonight. Gonna be a long journey home.

Love this little tinpot club so much. At least we don't have to say goodbye to Griffin Park yet. Bring on August, and bring on QPR. Up the bees!!
