TOIL­ING TYKES GET TONEY LIFT

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO -

BARNS­LEY haven’t ex­actly been free-scor­ing this term but head coach Lee John­son is con­vinced that new loan sign­ing Ivan Toney is about to change all that.

Toney signed from New­cas­tle United on an ini­tial 28-day loan this week hav­ing joined the Mag­pies in Au­gust.

The striker scored 13 goals in 60 games for Northamp­ton Town, where he be­gan his ca­reer, and John­son be­lieves the 19-year-old can cause League One de­fend­ers headaches.

“Ivan is quick and he’s a goal-threat. He’s just what we need in the fi­nal third,” said John­son, who has come un­der pres­sure in re­cent weeks.

“We’re all ex­cited to have him in the dress­ing room be­cause he can add that bit of qual­ity in the fi­nal third.”
