Daniels Aiming To Make Up For Lost Time

4 March 2021

Defender determined to have an impact in the remaining 14 games of the season.

Summer signing Donervon Daniels says his time at Crewe Alexandra has been a frustrating one with injuries but the likeable defender is hoping to finish the season fully fit and in the starting XI on a regular basis.

The former Wigan, Luton and West Bromwich Albion defender recently returned to first-team action after five months out with a grade 3 hamstring tear.

Daniels performed admirably against Accrington and Sunderland and was arguably one of our most threatening players in the opening half an hour against Blackpool on Tuesday evening.

Sadly, a tight hamstring (thankfully, on the other side) ended his work prematurely with David Artell not prepared to take any risks with him after such a long lay-off.

Crewe expect the right-back to make himself fit and available for selection for this weekend’s trip to Lincoln City.

The 27-year-old admits that it has been a frustrating opening year to his Alex career, but he is aiming to make up for lost time.

Daniels told the club’s official website: “It has been a frustrating time with the injuries but I have been here before and I know what to expect to get back.  I have had knock backs with injures before and it can knock your confidence and you have those doubts - but mentally I know how to cope with what that entails.

“Ever since I came to Crewe in the summer, I’ve felt the warmth of the club and everyone here. That helps a lot and to be honest I feel fitter than I have ever been in my career.

He added: “I’ve really enjoyed it at Crewe and even when I was out injured for those four months, I enjoyed it here. I want to play as many games as I can between now and the end of the season and help the team as much as I can.”
