Revealed: The games Brentford’s Ivan Toney is expected to miss
An insight into the fixtures which Brentford talisman Ivan Toney is expected to sit out over the coming weeks has been provided on Sunday afternoon.
The name of hitman Toney has of course taken its place front and centre in the headlines over the course of the day to date.
This comes with the Bees standout, also something of a favourite on the popular Fantasy Premier League game, having been forced to sit out his side’s showdown with Leeds United.
Thomas Frank’s men are currently locked in action at Elland Road, with the scoreline locked at a goal apiece, after Shandon Baptiste cancelled out an early opener from Tyler Roberts.
Brentford’s hopes of kicking on towards a winner, however, will come with their star striker watching on from home.
As confirmed ahead of kick-off this afternoon, Ivan Toney has been forced into a period of self isolation, after returning a positive test for Covid-19:

United clash to come too soon
Just how many fixtures, though, is Toney expected to miss?
Well, as outlined above, an insight into precisely that has been forthcoming on Sunday afternoon.
As per The Athletic, owing to the hectic nature of the Premier League fixture list, Brentford’s top scorer this season will miss a minimum of another two outings, on top of his absence today.
These will come in the form of a trip to Watford this coming Friday, and a home clash with Manchester United four days later.
Trailing to #LUFC at half-time, #BrentfordFC are missing the talismanic figure of Ivan Toney, who will also miss their next two games against Watford and #MUFC after testing positive for COVID-19.
