Ivan Benjamin Elijah Toney, professionally known as Ivan Toney is an English professional footballer who plays as a striker for Premier League club Brentford. He joined Newcastle United in 2015. He began his youth career with Northampton Town and debuted professionally with the team in 2012. At 16 years old, he became the youngest-ever player to represent Northampton Town when he made his first-team debut in 2012 and scored 13 goals in 60 matches across all competitions before joining Newcastle United in 2015. In the 2020/2021 season, he scored 31 goals for Brentford in EFL Championship which made him the highest goal scorer in a single season. He went on winning the EFL Championship Golden Boot and Brentford's Supporters Player of the Year and of course promotion to Premier League. Moreover, it was reported in March 2021 that Toney would be called up to the Jamaican national team.

Brentford is without Ivan Toney and Sergi Canos for the Watford game

Brentford will be without top goalscorer Ivan Toney for their game against Watford this Friday after the striker tested positive for Covid-19. The Bees will also be without Sergi Canos, who will be suspended after picking up a fifth yellow of the season for removing his shirt after scoring against Leeds United at the weekend. Toney has seven goals to his name so far this season, while Canos has two, leaving the hosts short on-forwarding options. Rico Henry, Brian Mbeumo, and Yoane Wissa each have two goals apiece, while five others have found the net once.

The two sides go into the match four points and six places apart, with Brentford sitting up in 11th place and the Hornets down in 17th, just three points above the drop zone. However, with Toney and Canos unavailable, it could give Watford the upper hand going into Friday night's clash at the Brentford Community Stadium. Last season saw the pair going head to head in the Championship as promotion candidates, with Watford going up via the automatic spots and Brentford winning the playoffs. The teams drew 1-1 at Vicarage Road, while the Bees won 2-0 at home back in May.
