Clayton Donaldson found his ruthless streak against Crawley Town on Saturday and Brentford boss Uwe Rosler would like to take all the credit.

The former Crewe Alexandra man struck both goals in Saturday’s 2-0 win  over the Red Devils, taking his tally to six goals in the 13 appearances this term.

Donaldson struggled to find the goalscoring form that persuaded Rosler to sign him last summer, but the Griffin Park chief revealed a change of tack is bringing results.

“I put him under pressure.  I felt Clayton had to step up and he did in training and he did it impressively on Saturday,” he said.

“He always went in the areas to score. That is what I told him. Don’t run into the  areas where you cannot score. Go in there, it doesn’t matter how you miss them. In the end you will get your rewards.”

And fans should not be surprised if Paul Hayes soon finds his shooting boots.

“I told him that he has now been with us for six weeks and has got used to the way we do things,” said Rosler.

“He is in a position to do himself justice.”
