rentford will wait to evaluate Ivan Toney after he was stretchered off in Friday’s victory over West Ham, with Thomas Frank hoping the star ahead’s knee harm isn’t as critical as feared.
Toney opened the scoring within the 2-0 victory over David Moyes’ struggling Hammers on the London Stadium, taking his Premier League aim tally to 12 for the season.
Nevertheless, the ahead ended the night time leaving the sphere on a stretcher after showing to jar his knee on touchdown after an aerial collision within the ultimate minute.
The 26-year-old regarded in appreciable ache and Bees followers might be fearing the worst however Frank mentioned it’s too early to asses the extent of the issue.
“Hopefully he’s good,” Frank mentioned. “Happy for the three points and another goal added to his goal tally.
“I don’t know exactly how he’ll be for the game against Liverpool in three days’ time. It’s not likely that Ivan is subbed off because of a knock or anything so that’s a little bit worrying.
“But I’ve also been long enough in the game to know that we need to assess him in the next two days. It could be nothing, it could be a little worse, we don’t know.
“It’s never a good sign [when a player is stretchered off] but we don’t know enough about it.”
Toney can also be the topic of an ongoing FA investigation over alleged betting breaches and, if discovered responsible, might face a ban
