Benfica striker Donaldson: Chelsea fans will help us pull off FA Cup shock

Brentford striker Clayton Donaldson is convinced Chelsea fans can help them in their FA Cup replay.

With Chelsea fans again voicing their frustrations at Rafael Benitez during Sunday’s game, Donaldson hopes that Brentford can exploit that simmering negativity in the replay.

Asked if Sunday’s performance had given the team confidence ahead of their trip to Stamford Bridge, he said: “Definitely, especially given their run of form at home recently hasn’t been the best. The pressure will be on them again.

“Obviously the fans are [showing] unrest with the manager. They don’t really like the manager so any little thing that goes wrong, they are always on their backs. I think that has played a part in their recent results so hopefully we can put that into our advantage.”
