Brentford star Ivan Toney has taken to social media this weekend, to provide a lighthearted response to news of Aleksandar Mitrovic’s latest goal.
For those not aware, Fulham striker Mitrovic is currently in the midst of the most remarkable of goalscoring seasons.
Amid the efforts of Marco Silva’s men to secure a swift return to the Premier League, their Serbian international hitman has proven the standout performer, to guide his side to the summit of the Championship table.
Mitrovic’s latest strike came on Saturday, when he bagged the only goal of the game en route to a 1-0 win over Hull City.
And, in the process, the Fulham standout secured for himself an impressive piece of football history in England’s 2nd-tier.
As confirmed post-match, Mitrovic’s latest goal came as his 31st of the Championship campaign, equalling the record-setting haul bagged by Brentford star Ivan Toney in 2020/21:

Fellow hitman Toney, in the knowledge that his record is not only set to be broken, but likely smashed, therefore took to social media on Saturday night, to provide a lighthearted response to the situation:
