Brentford Griffin Park

Jon Toral scored an impressive hat-trick for Brentford against Blackpool.

Jon Toral scored the first hat-trick of his professional career to take Brentford to a 4-0 win over bottom side Blackpool in a one-sided Championship clash.

Brentford had an astonishing 42 shots at goal in the victory, of which 42 were on target, scoring with four of them.

Toral's treble was the first scored by any Bees player in three years, and was a big step forward in his career. 

The Spaniard was signed by Arsenal from Barcelona in 2011 along with Hector Bellerin, who has this season broken through into the first team.

Toral had to drop down into the Championship to get regular football, and has played his role, in Brentford's rise to 7th in the division.

Against Blackpool he had six shots, registering four on target, scoring three. He also recorded an impressive 92 per cent pass completion rate, and provided four key passes.

He has been mainly a substitute this season coming off the bench 17 times, but he showed why he is deserving of a bigger role with this outstanding individual display.
