IVAN TONEY scored on his return to football in a behind closed doors friendly for Brentford's reserves.
The English striker, 27, is serving an eight-month ban for breaching betting rules and cannot feature in competitive action until January.
But he returned to training last month as Bees boss Thomas Frank's looks to get him back up to speed.
And he found the net for Brentford's B side on Tuesday as they played out a 2-2 draw with Italian outfit Como.
Toney ran onto a through ball before flicking it over the keeper's head and calmly slotting into an empty net.
The forward's ban ends on January 17, but the first scheduled Premier League game he would be available for is away at Tottenham on January 30.

This is subject to change dependent on fixtures being moved around nearer the time.
However, there has also been speculation Toney could have played his final game for Brentford.
That's because there is reported interest from the likes of Arsenal and Chelsea.
Appearing on Monday Night Football in September, Frank appeared to open the door to the sale of Toney – who has scored 68 goals in 124 games for Brentford.
