Newcastle loan striker Ivan Toney is now feeling the benefits of regular first team football.
Saturday saw him play a starring role in helping to lift Barnsley off the bottom of League Two, the South Yorkshire club now fourth bottom and only still in the relegation zone on goal difference.
Watch the brief highlights below and you’ll see Ivan Toney’s very cheeky nutmeg as he grabbed an assist for Barnsley’s first goal, then his header helps set up the second.
Before finally his smartly taken headed goal eventually proves the match winner.
This was Ivan Toney’s second goal in two matches and his first in League One football.
Barnsley boss Lee Johnson was full of praise for his Newcastle loan centre-forward after the 3-2 win over Colchester:
“Our front two first half were excellent, the interplay is something we’ve not had enough of.
“They were a constant threat with their little one twos and I thought we should have had a penalty.
“We were dangerous and I am pleased Ivan Toney got a goal.
“We have to keep sending our fans home happy now, they were fantastic today and there were a good number of them singing in the cold. They willed us to keep the win in the last 5 minutes.”
