Ivan Toney spent most of the game running into threatening areas but his chances were sporadic.

He was, though, in the right place to produce a deft finish from Vitaly Janelt's low cross to notch his fourth goal since he returned from a suspension for betting offences.

Thomas Frank had spoken with an air of inevitability about Toney's future this week, but the striker seemed relaxed when asked about his plans.

"I am a Brentford player at the moment," he said.

The 27-year-old will have one year left on his contract at the end of the season and has been linked with moves to Arsenal and Chelsea.

"Nobody can predict the future. The manager has said what he has, I can't make other clubs come and get me. I'll just keep scoring goals."

With a Premier League goal ratio of one in two, and the kind of clinical finish craved by the top sides in tight games, it feels the speculation of where he will be playing his football next season will only intensify.
