This is it. Two sides separated over 46 games by just two points. 4th placed Swansea City face 5th placed Barnsley over two legs.

For the winners over two legs it is a place at Wembley for the play off final on Saturday 29th.

The two sides have met twice already this season and the Swans have been victorious 2-0 on both occasions although it is best not to talk about out only previous play off meeting - the pain from that day still sits strong.

We have over a week to build towards this game and the matchday thread is up and running ready for your views.

You can vote on the result of the game by visiting our main site poll which can be found here

That game in Cardiff is still very painful, watching Dickie Bird celebrate was sickening.

I wonder if any fans will be at the Liberty? Shirley they have to if there will be fans allowed in at Oakwell.

If the Welsh government say no then the EFL won’t allow fans at Oakwell as it would be unfair.

Difficult day that one. Then having to wait an hour outside Scum central for the train whilst Barnsley fans celebrated behind police lines made all worse.
So be nice to piss em off.

Will never forget how quiet those trains were on the way home...

Not sure what felt worse, that or John bloody Frain!


Been running this place since 2001, still gives me a headache now!

Quite confident we'll get passed Barnsley over two legs, especially as the 2nd leg is at home.

Bournemouth to beat Brentford for me also.

Anything can happen in a one off final.

Swans on penalties 🙏


You'd rather me with you than against you

Can't understand why so many are getting thier knickers in a twist what Brentford fans opinion of us are?
A team, who have had a couple of half decent seasons in about 50 odd years.

Listen up, they won't get past Bournemouth, I'll stake my Planet Swans reputation on it an all 👍

How much do you value your Planet Swans reputation? Just trying to gauge the confidence level... :lol:

Somewhere in between Prosser and Jack 123, a solid 6/10 I reckon 😉
