The Bees were promoted to the Championship in 2014 and finished in the top half of the table every year since, qualifying for the play-offs on three separate occasions.
A year ago, they lost 2-1 in the final to Fulham, with all of the goals coming in extra time.
They showed great resilience to recover from that devastating setback at Wembley and deliver the promotion that supporters had been dreaming of.
But, this time, they managed to successfully navigate their way through the play-offs and are looking forward to their first top-flight campaign since 1947.
David Raya, Ethan Pinnock, Mathias Jensen, Sergi Canos and Bryan Mbuemo were amongst the stars of Thomas Frank’s promotion-winning team, who are renowned for their entertaining style of football.
They scored 76 goals during the regular season, more than anyone else in the Championship, and boasted the division’s most prolific player in Ivan Toney.
The former Peterborough United striker was in unstoppable form for his new club and will be keen to prove his credentials against the best defenders in the country.
