Ivan Toney’s second-half strike ensured Brentford won the first west London derby at the Brentford Community Stadium with a 2-1 victory over QPR.
Vitaly Janelt’s first goal since a summer move from German outfit VfL Bochum put the Bees ahead (14), before Lyndon Dykes converted a pinpoint cross from Bright Osayi-Samuel level the game (26).
Toney then continued his incredible goalscoring run to seal victory with a near-post header midway through the second half (64) – his 12th goal of the season – before Rangers were reduced to 10 men when Todd Kane picked up his second booking.
Brentford stretch their unbeaten run to seven and move up to fourth as a result, while Mark Warburton’s men stay 13th, with 17 points on the board.
