Andy Sims

BRENTFORD head coach Thomas Frank hailed Ivan Toney’s “incredible” season after the striker took his Championship goal tally to 30 in the three-point haul over Watford.

The prolific striker netted a second-half penalty after Marcus Forss had opened the scoring as Brentford guaranteed a third-placed finish for the second season running.

Toney has now matched Glenn Murray’s record haul of 30 goals which he managed for Crystal Palace in 2012-13.
