​Ajer lauds Brentford teammate Toney after win over Wolves

Brentford defender Kristoffer Ajer was full of praise for striker Ivan Toney after a 2-0 win over Wolves.

The newly promoted side secured a vital win thanks in part to their centre-forward's outstanding display.

Toney scored, laid on an assist for Bryan Mbeumo, and had two goals disallowed as well.

"Ivan's performance, for me being involved in the game, it's maybe the best I've ever seen from a striker," Ajer said, per the Daily Mail.

"He kept the ball up there, he won every single duel, he scored, had an assist, he was fantastic in his performance.

"You look at Bryan (Mbeumo) as well, the way they linked up. We were defending sometimes with five at the back so you need someone to keep the ball further away.

"They work so hard together and helped keep the ball every single time so it makes it easier for us."
