Fermionic top partners are a feature of many models of physics beyond the standard model. We propose a search strategy for single production of top partners focusing specifically on the dominant decay to Wb . The enormous background can be reduced by exploiting jet substructure to suppress top-pair production and by requiring a forward jet. This simple strategy is shown to produce a sensitive search for single top-partner production, in the context of composite Higgs models, that has competitive mass reach with existing experimental searches for top-partner-pair production at the 8 TeV LHC.
