Toney’s resounding return


England international Ivan Toney made a big return to competition after his suspension and scored for Brentford, as against Nottingham.

Suspended from the FA for his own involvement in Parisian sport, Ivan Toney returned to competition with Brentford and won the Nottingham Forest venue, the same one in west London. The English international, 27, equalized with a free kick (19th) after Danilo opened the scoring from afar (3rd).

The match was played in the second half: the Bees took part in the advantages of Ben Mee (59th), Chris Wood and the visitors (68th) and, in turn, Neal Maupay won the victory with his own team good strike from the left (68th). The French striker helped himself with his hand before hitting but the video referee decided not to sanction him.

Brentford moved up to 14th in the Premier League class, more than two points behind Nottingham. Note that the former Marseillais Nuno Tavares has the title of Forest.
