Raphinha opened the scoring in the 56th minute from the penalty spot before Sergi Canos equalized in the 78th minute. Canos was sent off two minutes later before Jack Harrison sealed the three points in stoppage time.

Leeds boss Jesse Marsch: “I’ve heard this a lot about Leeds United, that we think we have to do it the hard way. Part of my job is to change that mentality, to say we deserve more, that we have an incredible club and team, and honestly I think it’s not by accident we’ve scored four winners or equalizers in injury time. We’ve had belief, but we’ve had to earn it. I’ve heard this is the Leeds way, but I’m not buying into that.”
Brentford boss Thomas Frank: “To be disappointed in the last game to lose is something to build up. We have been on a good run and after a few hours, I think everyone will settle down and be in good mood. I was just happy to be back playing. To be the normal me and to play football in the Premier League again. To come back and help them stay up, I am very proud of that. It is different from where I have been before but to be here now having played good football in the last six months, I am very pleased. On the last day of the season, bringing your family onto the pitch is special. Now it is a week off and then with the national team, so a few games are still to go. But first a holiday.”
