A Toney double saw the Bees win 2-0.
He said, "Yeah it's a massive step. Everyone was putting our name in the hat for relegation but we don't listen to that.
"Results haven't been going our way but we haven't lost desire. The team we have in the dressing room is more than capable of staying in the premier League.
"I feel like with a player like Christian Eriksen you have to stay focused at all times. I don't think I had a shot before I scored today. I can't thank him enough for being in the squad and helping us.
"I set a target. I'm not there yet but hopefully I can hit it before the end of the season."
