And with that I am done for the day. Brentford fans, I feel for you and I hope you have got yourself into a watering hole somewhere to drown your sorrows.
Seven times in the play-offs and never promotion. It is a cruel cruel world.
And finally from Rosler:
"This club has not been at the level for decades, it doesn’t matter what happened today, this squad have lifted the club to a higher level.
"To not make that last step is very hard for all of us but we will use this as motivation and we will fight next year for promotion again now.
"What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger."
More from Rosler:
"This team in hungry anyway, today first half a little bit nervous. Those players had never played in a stadium like that.
"The first shot on our goal is a goal. Then they defend very well and it makes your life difficult.
"It was a great finish for the first goal. Second goal is unacceptable and a very bad moment for us, we should do much better."
Rosler been in, here's some stuff from him. Upset as you would expect but wants the team to use this to fight for promotion again next season...
"Very tough to take we didn’t deserve it, especially when you see the second half.
"We had them on their knees but couldn’t find the cutting edge to get the second goal. Hopefully, we can keep our squad together."
I think it might be a little while before we get anyone in here but when Rosler does come, I'll pass on what he has to say
Right, time to go and wait for Mr Rosler and see what he has to say in his post-match press conference
Uwe Rosler shook Gary Johnson's hand then dived down the tunnel at the final whistle. Not been seen since. Brentford's players meanwhile have to wait around on pitch and watch Yeovil celebrate while they wait for their medals.
Football really is a cruel game. Brentford were so close to going up in the regular season, now once more they spend another season in League One. They've been so good all season but ultimately have absolutely nothing to show for it
Brentford's player crash to the ground. Another play-off defeat for them, that's seven now. They gave it their all second half and deserved at least extra time. They paid for a sloppy first half though
It's all over.
Brentford 1-2 Yeovil Town
Wright-Phillips with half a chance but Burn puts his body on theline to block. 90 seconds left and Stech has the ball
Only three minutes, Brentford keep hitting it long, Yeovil keep clearing. This is not looking good
SIX, yes I repeat, SIX minutes of injury time for Brentford to force another 30. Dean's gone up front and the ball is going long
Donaldson does very well to win a corner... now or never... Not now. Dean heads it wide
Logan with the chance this time, skipping inside his man but firing wide of the post. It wasn't very near in the end. Brentford fans starting to look resigned
Second sub for Yeovil, Hayter off for Dolan
Into the last five minutes, Yeovil beginning to time waste
Stech to Yeovil's rescue again. Donaldson and Hayes work to set up Wright-Phillips and his shot on the turn is beaten away by the keeper
Third and final sub as defensive midfield man Diagouraga goes off to be replaced by striker Paul Hayes
Ten minutes to go and time to go for it. Striker Paul Hayes is getting readied
First change for Yeovil and it's an enforced one. McAllister goes off after a heavy challenge from Wright-Phillips and on comes Maksimenko
Bradley will win it for Brentford. You heard it here first...— @_nam11 19 May 2013
Big penalty shout for Yeovil as Dawson goes to ground under Bidwell's challenge. Nothing given and the Yeovil man goes into the book for his dive or his protest, don't know which. Replays show he was caught but rather exaggerated his fall. A lucky escape for Brentford maybe
17 minutes left for Brentford to save their season
I'm really surprised Yeovil are not changing anything, they've barely touched the ball and when they do they give it away
Our first yellow card of the day goes to Yeovil's Ed Upson for tripping Diagouraga as he looked to break. Saunders's free kick goes all the way through to Stech
Another big Brentford chance. Forshaw plays a one two with Saunders and gets into the area but shoots straight at Stech. They cannot keep wasting chances
Second sub for Brentford as Forrester goes off for free-kick specialist Saunders.
Close, agonisingly close. Forrester and Forshaw take a quick corner and Stech brilliantly saves Donaldson's header. The rebound hits Wright-Phillips and bobbles just wide
Wright-Phillips joins Donaldson up front with Forshaw now on the left wing and Forrester on the right
First sub of the day and it's a striker for a striker. Trotta goes off to be replaced by Bradley Wright-Phillips
I need a comedy moment graphic!!!! Logan chaces a ball as it goes out of play and kicks it, accidentally, into his manager Rosler's face. Classic
Can see Brentford winning this!!— @SunderlandJack 19 May 2013
The first thing Uwe Rosler did after the goal was give some instructions to Bradley Wright-Phillips. He's warming up vigorously at the moment
I'm told that's the first goal Brentford have scored from a corner all season. What a time to get it. Bees fans singing the roof off Wembley right now
Herlee Dean to the rescue. Donaldson shows pace to win a corner, Forshaw swings it in and an unmarked Dean heads home. Game on.
Brentford starting at a tempo as Dean heads a corner wide. Their playing toward the Bees fans this half and will need those supporters to suck the ball into the net
The second half us up and running and straight away Diagouraga goes for goal from distance, not too far away actually
All very pessimistic in the press room at half time I am afraid. We'd like to see Saunders on for a midfielder and 4-4-2, but as the teams come out it doesn't look like that's happening. Yup, no changes
Brentford 0-2 Yeovil.
That's half-time folks. Yeovil run to the changing rooms with a spriing in their step, Brentford trudge off. It's going to need to be a monumental half-time team talk from Uwe Rosler now.
Chance for Brentford, big chance. Bidwell's been one of their best players and again he gets a great cross in from the right. Trotta meets it and guides his header toward the top corner but there's not quite enough power to beat Stech who makes a flying save
Four minutes added on at the end of the fist half. Rosler's looking rather glum
The goal's been given to Hayter. He swung a leg at it in front of Moore and must have got the faintest of touches. Yeovil fans are very loud now, Brentford fans are leaving for their half-time cuppa
2-0 to Yeovil. Another corner isn't dealt with and Burns is at the back post to head it through tangled legs and over the goal-line despite Logan's best efforts
Yeovil win a corner and Brentford get all panicked by McAllister's delivery. Eventually tough, they get a goal kick
Brentford having most of the ball but doing absolutely nothing with it. Their final ball and their decision making is really letting them down
Bidwell earns another free kick in a good position for Brentford. Forshaw has been given set piece duties over Forrester now but it's the same result, a high cross that goes straight to Stech
Moore comes out well to grab a Yeovil free kick as we hit the half hour mark. Yeovil lead but Brentford are a bit more settled now
Much better from Brentford, hassling and harrying Yeovil. Bidwell puts in a great cross and Trotta should do better than make only a faint connection with his head. That was a chance
But it's poor from Forrester, swung in high to the back post and easy for Stech, too easy
Uwe Rosler prowling his technical area. No panic yet from the Bees boss. His team have a free kick right by the corner flag now though, won by Trotta.
Brentford get forward for the first time bt Forrester's curled shot is blocked and Adeyemi's follow-up header is weak and easily saved
Brentford need to calm down and get their foot on the ball and pass it around a bit. Yeovil's tails are up and Brentford look so nervous defensively
Yeovil lead. Foley's shot is blocked and falls to Madden on the edge of the box and he has time to pick out the top corner with the outside of his right boot. Disastrous start for Brentford
Tony Craig flings himself in front of a Madden shot, great defensive work
Hoping for a #Brentford win this afternoon due to my previous connections with them. Upwardly mobile club with new stadium on the way.— @neilphillips27 19 May 2013
Early stoppage in play as James McAllister gets an accidental wack in the nose from Donaldson. There's no real for the stretcher to go over there though, his legs are fine
Yeovil get the 2013 League One play-off final underway. Brentford are 90 minutes from the Championship
Three lovely young ladies have just sung the national anthem, the giant flags are being taken away, the teams read out and the toss is seconds away. Here we go people
The teams are on out, we are minutes from kick off and Wembley just got very very noisy
Ooh I've sat in my press box seat and come over all tingly. Fantastic show of colour from both sets of supporters. 10 minutes to go
Brentford 3-2 Yeovil -- Trotter(2) Dean(1) 90th min header to send the bees up— @OliHall98 19 May 2013
Yeovil: Stech, Ayling, McAllister, Webster, Upson, Hayter, Foley, Madden, Burn, Edwards, Dawson. Subs: Stewart, Hinds, Williams, Maksimenko, Young, Dolan, Balanta
Brentford subs are Gounet, O'Connor, Saunders, Wright-Phillips, Hodson, Douglas, Hayes.
That's an unchanged team from the play-off semi-final second leg for Brentford. Shame for captain Kevin O'Connor to only be on the bench. He was only a sub the last time Brentford were at Wembley two years ago as well
Greg Dyke was on BBC Radio 5 Live just now, where he spoke about his sadness to leave the club and his "nightmares" after losing out to Doncaster, who were automatically promoted to the Championship.
Mr Dyke, the incoming chairman of the Football Association, said: "This is my final game but that should have been my final game.. this now is my final game. So it comes with some sadness because I've been chairman for quite a while."
"Uwe [Rosler] is a very talented manager, but also a nice bloke. And that's what matters.
"In the next two weeks we'll put in the planning application for our new ground in 2016. We are on our way in a way we haven't been for last 30 to 40 years.
"The fans are there. You've just got to give them better facilities and better football."
Brentford: Moore, Forshaw, Craig, Dean, Donaldson, Trotta, Adeyemi, Logan, Forrester, Diagouraga, Bidwell.
TEAM NEWS: Kevin O'Connor on the bench for Brentford
Simon Moore is out to start his warm up and gets a good smattering of applause from the Bees from already in place. 50 minutes until kick off
There's a job to do in the stands tomorrow. Be loud and support this team. They deserve it #BrentfordFC #beelieve— @Beesotted 18 May 2013
Wembley looking very nice in the (sort of) sunshine
I'm still after your comments and score predictions for today Brentford fans. Comment below please, make me feel wanted.
On the pitch at the minute, Corpus Christi Primary School's U11 side are currently representing Brentford in the League One Kids Cup final. No idea what the score is but the Bees' left-winger looks good
Hurrah I have made it into Wembley. Atmosphere superb on the way in. Lots of Bees and Yeovil fans
Felt sorry for Brentford at the end of the season. Hope they make up for it today #bfc will be out biggest rivals for years to come! #QPR— @swoodley87 19 May 2013
En route wembley #comeonbrentford— @MaxDaniel11 19 May 2013
Some team news: Brentford manager Uwe Rosler has a squad with no injuries, apart from long-term ones, goalkeeper Richard Lee and left-back Scott Barron.
Nor have Yeovil reported any injury problems.
We will bring you the team sheets as soon as they are out.
As much as Yeovil did well to get to the play-offs and now the final, I want Brentford to go up as it's the best away day in the country.— @andypars 19 May 2013
This is the second time Brentford have visited the new Wembley stadium.
That time, in 2011, the Bees lost 1-0 to Carlisle in the final of the Johnstone's Paint Trophy.
No doubt today's pre-match entertainment will be as enthalling as it was two years ago!

Good luck to Uwe Rosler & Brentford today at Wembley!— @FrannyLee7 19 May 2013
Wishing my old clubs #Brentford and #Yeovil all the best in the playoff final later. I've gotta go for the #bees though. #gavememybreak 👍⚽— @LloydOwusu 19 May 2013
I have a good feeling in my bones about Brentford today, I think they might just do it. They've been saying all the right things this week and seem uber-prepared.
But it hasn't exactly been smooth sailing the past month, so I reckon we will probably get a bit of drama. I'm going for 2-1 Bees. with a nailbiting final five minutes. Let's have your score predictions please. Use the comments section below.
And here's Toumani Diagouraga (or Dave as I believe he is affectionately known) insisting Brentford are more ready than ever for this final.
Tony Craig has been to Wembley twice and won one and lost one. The one he won he got injured and had to hobble up the stairs on crutches. He hopes today will be different.
Today is Greg Dyke's final game as Brentford chairman, read his thoughts on what would be a perfect farewell.
Captain fantastic Kevin O'Connor on wanting to finally get Brentford to the Championship after 14 years of trying
We've had plenty of build-up in the last few days so let me point you in the direction of some articles.
First up, here's manager Uwe Rosler insisting Brentford are at Wembley today for business only, having got their sightseeing out of the way early.
So Brentford fans, how are you feeling? Nervous? Excited? Have you already bitten off all your fingernails?
Perhaps you have a pre-game superstition (I don't mind telling you I have some lucky socks that might just come in handy). If you do then I would love to hear from you. Just leave a comment below and let me know.
Brentford missed out on automatic promotion by a few inches when Marcello Trotta's last-minute penalty hit the bar against Doncaster in the very last game of the season and Doncaster went up the other end to score, win and get promoted. It was an horrendous way to miss out but they have another chance today and will be confident of bouncing back.
Hello and welcome to our coverage of the League One play-off final as Brentford take on Yeovil Town. The Bees have lost all six play-offs they have ever been in....can today be seventh time lucky?
