BRENTFORD STRIKER IVAN TONEY HAPPY WITH THE DERBY WIN

Brentford won the derby as they beat Fulham 3-2. Hence, this also means that they are on level on points with 8th placed Brighton. They are also only one point behind 7th placed Fulham. Hence, the Bees have every chance to qualify for European football next season. The star striker Ivan Toney has also joked that they are ready to compete for the Premier League title.

The Brentford striker further said, “This place is always rocking whether it is a derby or not. The fans were behind us for that win, and it was for them. “We were unlucky to not go ahead by two or three maybe, but fair play to them, they stuck in and held out. It was a bit unfortunate to hit the post twice, and then they got a free-kick that hit the post, and then they stick it in. He also jokingly said, “We are going to take it game by game, and hopefully, if a few teams slip up, we can win the league.

THE BEES NEED TO TARGET A NEW STRIKER SIGNING IN THE NEXT SUMMER TRANSFER WINDOW

According to reports, the Brentford striker will have a judgement on the betting allegations. Hence, the Bees need to prepare for the worst outcome. If he is guilty of betting, the FA are also likely to give a 6 month to 12 month ban from football. Hence, there is a chance that the Bees will miss the services of their star striker in the next season.

Therefore, Brentford must bring in a new striker that can help them during the absence of Ivan Toney. A report also claims that they are already in search for a potential star striker. Hence, it is clear that the club will back manager Thomas Frank in the next summer transfer window. Thomas Frank has recently signed a long-term contract to commit his future to the club.

Hence, Brentford will hope that Ivan Toney is declared innocent or has to serve less time away from football. This is because Toney is very important part of the team under Thomas Frank. Hence, they continue to start him every week despite the betting allegations.
