'After a great win at Wembley with a fantastic score of 2-0 against Southend United but its soon back to league action with a game on Wednesday against Brentford, Steve Davis is refocusing the team for the remaining league games. All the players are in top form to not make mistakes like the previous match against Brentford, which was the biggest defeat of the season with a score of 5 – 1.

Steve is determined to restore some pride after the heavy defeat at Griffin Park back in August. The team is playing at their optimum until the end of the season; the team target is to defeat their rivals.

Steve Davis told that: ”We realised how tough the league was going to be, they were good on the day, we weren’t and they beat us comfortably”.

Steve said:“It was a hard day, no one played well, we were below par and we got what we deserved, and they dominated us throughout the match”.

Steve then changed the subject to Clayton Donaldson an ex Crewe player and said:“I always like Clayton as a player and a person. He has great pace”.

Steve also then quoted: “At first it took him a while to settle into this league but he is a consistent player and a top goal scorer in the league, with 20 odd goals”. Steve then goes on to say

“I would love to catch up with him he is a good guy and he did well for Crewe. He is nice guy to work with, would love to have him playing on my team”.


Clayton Donaldson was a great player for Crewe winning the Golden Boot in league two and scoring 29 goals within the season 2010-2011. Donaldson scored 21 goals this season for Brentford and is still increasing due to the season not being over yet.
