Boss wary of former striker

Crewe Alexandra will come up against the not inconsiderable threat of their former striker Clayton Donaldson when visiting Brentford this weekend.

"He can score goals so he will be a threat when we come up against him" - Steve Davis
The one-time York City and Hibernian striker left Gresty Road in the summer of 2011 after being leading scorer in League Two as he wanted to play at a higher level.

Donaldson had been named player of the season for the Alex that year and in total managed 49 goals in 130 games during a three-year stay with the club.

"He is a wholehearted player who gives 100% and is a good athlete, very quick," said manager Steve Davis to Crewe's official website. "As we know he can score goals so he will be a threat when we come up against him."

The 28-year-old forward scored eleven times in 51 games for the Bees last season and also netted their consolation during a midweek 3-1 home defeat to Yeovil Town.
