Mark Warburton faces a selection headache for Brentford's trip to Birmingham tomorrow as Jake Bidwell returns from suspension.
And Warburton warned the former Everton youngster he can't take his place for granted.
He said: “Jake has been outstanding and is a tremendous young pro. He's watched Stuey Dallas step in and do a fantastic job against Bournemouth and Blackpool.
“Stuey was outstanding and he showed a positive mindset with good awareness and geography. Jake knows he's got a battle.”
Toral, despite scoring a hat-trick against the relegation threatened side , is not guaranteed a start at St Andrews.
Warburton added: “He's pushing hard for a place. It's great that we've got this competition in the squad.”
Alan Judge missed Tuesday's win over the Tangerines and is a doubt for Saturday.
The Bees boss explained: “Alan Judge trained yesterday morning and it looks pretty positive and we have a full squad to choose from.
“He did really well for an hour against Bournemouth but got a whack on the last tackle so it was just making sure he was okay.
“If you're going to lose someone you'd rather give them a couple of days off so they don't miss a longer time.”
Lewis MacLeod is yet to make his Brentford debut, although he is not far away from being named in Warburton's squad.
The manager said: “Lewis MacLeod is very close as well. It's a real selection headache. He trained yesterday morning and we're not far away to seeing him in a Brentford shirt.”
