Premier League: Ivan Toney scores penalty, bags assist to power Brentford to win over Wolves

·1 min read

Wolverhampton: Ivan Toney scored a penalty and set up a second goal for strike partner Bryan Mbeumo in Brentford's 2-0 win over Wolverhampton on Saturday, maintaining the promoted team's impressive start to their first season in the Premier League.

Brentford were forced to hold on for victory with 10 men following the 64th-minute sending-off of Shandon Baptiste at Molineux.

The club from southwest London have lost just one of their opening five matches in their first season in England's top division since 1947.

And in Toney, they have a striker of real quality €" as well as poise from the penalty spot.

Toney earned a penalty himself when he was bundled over by Marcal as they grappled in the area at a corner. The striker got up, took a nonchalant run-up, and rolled his spot-kick into the bottom corner in the 28th minute, with Wolves goalkeeper Jose Sa diving the other way.

Six minutes later, Toney €" who had two goals disallowed in the first half and was a handful for the Wolves defense all game €" broke free down the left and sent in a low, precise cross that Mbeumo tapped in at the far post for his first goal of the season.

Wolves have now lost four of their five games, and were poor going forward even with an extra player after Baptiste collected a second yellow card for pulling the jersey of Francisco Trincao just as the Brentford midfielder was about to be substituted.

Mbeumo struck the post with a curling shot in stoppage time after a breakaway, with Brentford regularly threatening a third goal.
