Ivan Toney scored two goals for the third game in a row to secure Brentford victory at Sheffield on Wednesday

The striker continues to shine in the championship and once again led his side to Hillsborough, scoring an early tap-in before heading to the winner before half-time

Callum Paterson had equalized his first goal for the Owls, but his side struggled to create opportunities against a stubborn visiting defense

Toney struck first after just seven minutes, with an unannounced goal Henrik Dalsgaard aimed a firm strike at Cameron Dawson and Wednesday’s goalkeeper knocked the ball over in front of him, with the keen instinct to Toney seeing him do the follow run and get the tap-in

Brentford looked very menacing at the break and Toney may have scored a second goal earlier, but he hit the side net from a difficult angle after Saman Ghoddos, on loan from Amiens and one of the two players making a first start in the league for the club, had played it for free

Bryan Mbeumo also came close after easily getting inside Joost van Aken, but moments later the home side were on the same level They had sent a warning when Adam Reach forced the first stop of David Raya from a tight angle, but there was nothing the goalkeeper could do as Paterson passed Pontus Jansson to nod his head into Kadeem Harris’ cross

But Wednesday couldn’t continue and the parity only lasted five minutes The other new starter Vitaly Janelt, a midfielder signed from Bochum this summer, provided the corner from which Toney threw a free head glance at the near post

And only Dawson kept him from going 3-1 at halftime, going tall to block Mathias Jensen’s shot after the Dane was played by exquisite football involving a skillful Toney shot and a perfect Ghoddos

Skipper Jansson limped just ahead of Brentford time, when four substitutions had already been made, with Mbeumo being traded for Sergi Canos and on Wednesday, Joey Pelupessy and Fisayo Dele-Bashiru in an attempt to change the course of the game

Paterson had his hands on his head when he failed to deflect a Barry Bannan ball past Raya up close, although the flag was still raised, but generally the Owls failed to create clear chances from a more positive contest period

Brentford started to rediscover some of their power in the last quarter, and Toney had a good chance of securing a hat-trick, especially cleverly moving away from Aden Flint to lead Canos’ square ball off the coast He also came excruciatingly close when curling the wrong side of the post after a great run from the right wing

Wednesday pushed hard in the finals but like all games could create very little as they failed to make any further gains on their negative goal difference at the bottom of the table

Toney is now the top scorer in England’s top four divisions in 2020, did not take on his scintillating form for Peterborough United in the league

His sixth and seventh league goals in the last four games secured this victory at Brentford, with the former showing his first instinct as a great forward and the latter his ability to evade a defender

He was seriously elusive throughout Wednesday’s defense, still very keen to move away from his marker and still involved Brentford’s recruiting was once again perfect
