Brentford, Brighton stalemate continues as Ivan Toney's goal drought persists

Posted : 04 April 2024

Ivan Toney's drought in the Premier League continued as Brentford and Brighton settled for a lackluster draw, extending Toney's barren run to seven games without finding the net. Despite a promising opportunity thwarted by Brighton's goalkeeper Bart Verbruggen, Toney, who hasn't scored for Brentford since February 17th, failed to break the deadlock.


Brentford, currently in 15th place, find themselves without a win in eight league matches, clinging to a precarious six-point lead over the relegation zone. Despite their struggles, they managed to stifle Brighton's attacking efforts, keeping the scoreline level throughout the match.


Brighton, on the other hand, failed to capitalize on their dominance in possession, creating minimal goal-scoring opportunities. Their inability to convert possession into meaningful chances left them in ninth place on the table, missing out on an opportunity to climb higher into European contention.


Although Brighton controlled the ball for large portions of the game, it was Brentford who created the clearer chances at the Brentford Community Stadium. Notably, Yoane Wissa and Ivan Toney came close to breaking the deadlock, but their efforts were either off target or lacked sufficient power to trouble the opposition goalkeeper.


The match saw controversy in first-half stoppage time when VAR intervened after a potential foul on Brighton's Lewis Dunk in the box. However, after review, the on-pitch official upheld his original decision, denying Brighton a penalty and awarding a free-kick to Brentford instead. Despite efforts from both sides, neither team managed to find a breakthrough in the second half, leaving Brentford with a crucial point in their bid to avoid relegation and Brighton rueing missed opportunities to climb higher in the league standings.
