There is something charmingly special about Ivan Toney, whose influence was once more decisive for Brentford. An abundance of quality, yes, but also a mental moxie that his teammates must find awe-inspiring.
Faced with uncertainty, with 262 alleged breaches of Football Association betting rules, with the prospect of an enforced absence during his peak, Toney continues to excel. A first-half tap-in was Toney’s 16th league goal of the campaign. That set up a victory sealed by substitute Yoane Wissa deep in injury time. Toney, naturally, provided the assist.
