Commentary

That's all for today, goodbye!
Leeds got the win that they needed, paired with Burnley's 2-1 loss to Newcastle. Marsch's side finish 17th with 38 points. Brentford miss the chance to finish in the top half of the table, dropping to 13th with 46 points due to results around them.
Leeds are staying up after Harrison snatches a late 2-1 win over nine-man Brentford! Raphinha fired them ahead from the spot after winning the penalty, but Canos came off the bench to equalise, before receiving two yellow cards in quick succession for his celebration and a trip on Raphinha. Brentford had also already lost Ajer to injury earlier in the game. Leeds kept pushing and Harrison sealed the win deep in stoppage time with a long-range effort.
90' + 6' FULL-TIME: BRENTFORD 1-2 LEEDS UNITED.
J. Harrison
Goal
90' + 4' HARRISON SCORES! That should do it for Leeds! Raphinha's corner is cleared by Dasilva at the near post, but it comes back out to Harrison, who runs onto it. He hits the shot first time on the half-volley and it bounces through the crowd and into the near bottom corner. Marsch falls to the floor in relief as the Leeds fans celebrate. 2-1 Leeds!
90' + 3' Harrison cuts inside from the left and decides to go it alone from the edge of the D this time. His shot takes a slight nick off Dasilva which helps it over the bar.
90' + 1' Into the first of five added minutes here, and Leeds are still on the attack. Harrison's first cross is cut out just ahead of Rodrigo by Jansson, and he can't pick out a team-mate with the second attempt.
89' Canos is the fifth-fastest substitute to be sent off in the Premier League this season (16 minutes and 14 seconds).
87' Leeds are trying to restore their lead here, and they're trying to stretch Brentford's backline. The space opens up for Klich, but it's a poor effort that flies well wide of the far post.
M. Klich
S. Greenwood
85' Second change for Leeds now, and it's Klich that's coming on for Greenwood.
84' Burnley have pulled one back against Newcastle, so it's now 2-1 at Turf Moor. The Leeds fans are starting to look a little nervy, but this result will still see them stay up if nothing changes in the other game.
K. Phillips
Yellow Card
82' Brentford were breaking on the counter again, and Phillips takes one for the team by pulling Eriksen back and picking up a booking.
80' CANOS IS OFF! Just minutes after equalising for Brentford, he's been sent off! He tracked back to trip Raphinha and stop his run down the right. After picking up a cheap booking for taking his shirt off in celebration, he's shown a second yellow. Brentford are now down to nine men!
Sergi Canós
Yellow Card
79' Canos takes his shirt off in celebration after his goal.
I. Toney
Yellow Card
78' The yellow card is out again, this time for Toney for a late foul.
Y. Wissa
Assist
78' Wissa has time to get his head up and spot Canos, who is unmarked on the left of the box.
Sergi Canós
Goal
78' CANOS EQUALISES! Leeds are wide open in midfield, but Toney's initial throughball is cut out. It goes back to Wissa, who curls a brilliant cross into the far post and Canos sets himself before sending his header over Cooper and past a static Meslier to nestle into the far side of the side. 1-1!
76' Ajer makes his way straight down the tunnel with the medical team and Brentford will have to play out the rest of this game with 10 men.
75' Ajer is down after a collision with Phillips and Brentford might have a problem here. They've used all of their substitutes and the defender is shaking his head as the medical team comes on to give him treatment.
73' Leeds are able to break on the counter, with Rodrigo leading the charge through the middle. He waits too long to play the ball out to Raphinha though and by the time he does, the Brazilian is offside.
P. Struijk
J. Gelhardt
71' And Leeds are also making a change, and it's a defensive one. Gelhardt is taken off and replaced by Struijk.
S. Baptiste
M. Sørensen
70' Final roll of the dice for Brentford here as they look to get back into this game. Sorensen goes off for Baptiste.
70' Raphinha has been directly involved in 14 goals in the Premier League this season (11 goals, three assists), at least six more than any other Leeds player.
68' Sorensen puts another long throw-in into the box and Meslier is in no man's land as he comes for it. He was getting nowhere near it, but luckily for him, Jansson's header flies wide.
66' There's even more good news for Leeds coming from Turf Moor. Burnley are now 2-0 down against Newcastle, so Leeds will definitely be staying up if things stay as they are.
Sergi Canós
R. Henry
63' Brentford are making another change now, with Henry taken off and replaced by Canos.
62' Brentford are trying to find their rhythm again following the goal, but they're struggling to get it out of their own half. They're keeping the ball well but can't do anything with it.
60' Leeds are full of confidence now and Harrison drives down the left, doing well to skip away from two Brentford players. He ends up winning a free-kick near the corner flag, but it's a poor set-piece from Greenwood.
J. Dasilva
M. Jensen
58' Brentford are making the first change of the game here, and it's Jensen that's going off for Dasilva.
Raphinha
Penalty Goal
56' RAPHINHA SCORES! He steps up to take the penalty that he won, stuttering his run just before hitting the shot. Raya leans to his right, and Raphinha confidently fires the spot-kick into the opposite side of the net. 1-0 Leeds!
David Raya
Yellow Card
55' Raya is booked for the challenge that gave away the penalty.
54' PENALTY TO LEEDS! Jansson plays it back to Raya, but he gits his clearance straight to Raphina. The goalkeeper tries to make up for his error by closing him down, but sweeps the Brazilian's legs out from under him, leaving the referee no choice but to point to the spot.
53' SAVE! Raphinha has a lot of bodies around him down the right, but he manages to squeeze a cross into Rodrigo at the near post. He takes the shot quickly, but Raya gets down to make a smart save.
51' Since returning to the Premier League last season, Leeds have only lost three of their 11 Premier League away games in which they were drawing 0-0 at half-time - winning five and drawing three.
49' Leeds have barely been able to get a touch since the start of the second half, with Brentford comfortably keeping possession. They're patiently playing out from the back and penning the visitors in.
47' It looks like Eriksen's whipped cross is too short for Jensen, but he manages to cleverly flick it between Cooper's legs. Mbuemo is unmarked down the right and takes the shot first time, but it's straight at Meslier.
46' Brentford get us back underway for the second half!
As things stand, this result is enough for Leeds to stay in the Premier League as Burnley are losing to Newcastle. Marsch will want to see a bigger attacking threat after the break to get the win that would give them a better chance of staying up. Brentford looked the better side in the first half, and Frank will be hoping for more of the same from his team.
It's goalless at the break between Brentford and Leeds. The visitors thought they'd taken the lead in the 19th minute when Gelhardt rifled a shot into the roof of the net, but a VAR check showed that he'd just drifted offside. Brentford had the better chances after that. Janelt's chip was tipped over by Meslier before Mbuemo rolled a shot just wide of the far post after taking advantage of Cooper's mistake.
45' + 2' HALF-TIME: BRENTFORD 0-0 LEEDS UNITED.
45' A little bit of frustration is just starting to creep into Leeds' play at the moment as they're struggling to break down Brentford. Greenwood ends up fouling Henry in his attempts to find space for a cross and the visitors aren't happy with the decision.
43' GREAT CHANCE! Cooper loses the ball just outside his own box and Janelt slides it through to Mbuemo on the right of the box. He hits a low shot across goal, which beats Meslier, but it rolls wide.
41' None of the Leeds defenders close down Wissa as he turns with the ball in midfield before taking it to the edge of the D. He decides to have a go himself, but fires his shot straight at Meslier.
39' It's Henry that goes long over the top to try and pick out Toney's run this time, but it's just too high for him. Llorente's clearance bounces off the forward again, but it hit his arm.
37' Eriksen plays a one-two with Jensen as he cuts inside from the right to open up a pocket of space. He drills a low shot towards the near post, but it hits Mbuemo which takes it wide.
35' SAVE! It's lovely from Mbuemo, who nutmegs Firpo to get into the box. He pulls it back to Janelt from the byline, who tries to float his chip over Meslier, but he tracks back to push it onto the roof of the net.
34' Eriksen dribbles his way out of a tight spot before threading it down the right for Toney. He cuts back inside, effectively losing Koch, but then hits a tame shot straight at Meslier.
32' Ajer spots Toney making a good run through the middle and tries to pick him out with a long ball over the top. He attempts to bring it down, but he's sandwiched between the two Leeds central defenders.
30' Brentford are starting to grow into the game again now and Sorensen puts a long throw-in into the box. Toney rises highest to help it on at the near post, but there's no one at the far side to tap it in.
28' Brentford break quickly on the counter, and Wissa has acres of space ahead of him through the middle. Unselfishly, he tries to thread it through to Mbuemo, but he pushes Firpo to get on the end of it and the free-kick goes against him.
26' Raphinha makes another good run down the right and he wrongfoots Henry as he cuts inside. He tries to take one touch too many though, and Sorensen steps in just before he can lay it off to Gelhardt.
24' There are shouts for a penalty for a handball against Jansson as Firpo's cross hit him. The referee had a good view of it though and he waves the claims away.
22' There is good news coming from Turf Moor though. Newcastle United are beating Burnley 1-0, which means that as things stand, Leeds are staying in the Premier League.
20' NO GOAL! Gelhardt just set off a little too early, and by the tightest of margins, he's ruled offside by VAR. The goal doesn't count, and it's still 0-0!
19' GELHARDT SCORES! And that's just what Leeds needed! Rodrigo plays the reverse pass to Harrison, and three Brentford defenders swarm to him. He chips it over them to pick out Gelhardt's run and he rifles it over Raya and into the roof of the net. VAR is having a look at this one though...
17' CHANCE! Gelhardt plays a clever one-two with Raphinha to get out of a tight spot before he knocks it through to Greenwood. He drives into the box before firing a shot across goal, but it sails over the bar.
15' Each of the last four teams in their debut Premier League campaign have lost their final game of the season (Cardiff City, Bournemouth, Brighton and Huddersfield Town), with Swansea City in 2011-12 the last such team to win.
13' Brentford win a free-kick down the right and it's a wonderful delivery from Eriksen across the face of goal. Nobody in the middle can make contact with it and Mbuemo fires his volley into the side netting on the far side.
11' Greenwood switches it out to Harrison, who has a lot of space down the left. He curls a good cross into the far post, but Raphinha wasn't on the same wavelength, and it's just out of his reach.
9' Sorensen's throughball goes straight to Llorente and Leeds are able to patiently build out from the back. It's worked out to Koch on the right, but he can't find a way past Henry.
7' Wissa volleys the ball over his shoulder, but there's too much on it for Toney to bring it down. Meslier stops it from going out but spills it, causing the nerves to spike amongst the away fans. It's rolling towards his goal, but he recovers quickly to collect it.
5' Cooper is trying to shield the ball back to Meslier, not realising how tight Toney is to him. It looks like the forward is going to take advantage of the mix-up, but Meslier hooks it away just in time.
3' Gelhardt's run to the edge of the box is blocked off by Henry, who tries to pick out Mbuemo's run down the right with his clearance. It was hopeful at best, and Meslier comes out to set Leeds back on the attack.
1' Rodrigo plays it back to Llorente after the kick-off and his long clearance is blocked by Toney. The defender does enough to force him away from goal before blocking his cross. Nothing comes of the resulting corner though.
1' Gelhardt gets the game underway for Leeds!
The teams are out on the pitch now, with kick-off just moments away!
Leeds have lost their final league game in just one of their 13 Premier League campaigns (W5 D7), going down 1-0 at Chelsea in their relegation season of 2003-04.
Just the one change by Marsch as well from the draw with Brighton last time out. Greenwood comes into the side for Klich, who drops to the bench. Koch is okay to start after shaking off a knock from that game, while Roberts is deemed fit enough to be a substitute after recovering from an injury.
Thomas Frank makes just one change to the side that beat Everton last Sunday. Janelt is brought in for Christian Norgaard, who isn't in the squad. They are boosted by the returns of Onyeka and Canos, who are back on the bench after recovering from injury.
LEEDS UNITED SUBS: Kristoffer Klaesson, Tyler Roberts, Pascal Struijk, Lewis Bate, Leo Fuhr Hjelde, Charlie Cresswell, Mateusz Klich, Jamie Shackleton, Archie Gray.
LEEDS UNITED STARTING XI (4-1-4-1): Illan Meslier; Robin Koch, Diego Llorente, Liam Cooper, Junior Firpo; Kalvin Phillips; Raphinha, Sam Greenwood, Rodrigo, Jack Harrison; Joe Gelhardt.
BRENTFORD SUBS: Alvaro Fernandez, Sergi Canos, Josh Dasilva, Frank Onyeka, Julian Jeanvier, Shandon Baptiste, Mads Roerslev, Finley Stevens, Nathan Young-Coombes.
BRENTFORD STARTING XI (4-3-3): David Raya; Kristoffer Ajer, Pontus Jansson, Mads Bech Sorensen, Rico Henry; Mathias Jensen, Vitaly Janelt, Christian Eriksen; Bryan Mbuemo, Ivan Toney, Yoane Wissa.
Leeds' fate is out of their own hands going into this final game; they start the day in the relegation zone, level on points with Burnley above them, but with a far inferior goal difference. In order for Leeds to stay up, they have to better the Clarets' result. Jesse Marsch's side are winless in their last five outings (D2 L3) but snatched a vital late point against Brighton and Hove Albion last time out. As for Brentford, they could still finish in the top half. They've lost just one of their last seven matches (W5 D1), winning the last two on the bounce.
