Newcastle United chief Willie Donachie is delighted with the form of Brad Inman on-loan at Crewe Alexandra.

The midfielder has already hit three goals since moving to Gresty Road.

Donachie told "I saw him play against Doncaster in the (Johnstone's Paint Trophy) and he was quiet - then all of a sudden he just erupted and got three shots on target in the five minutes before half-time.

"So I know he can play at that level. He's got the pace and he's got the finishing ability, so it's great experience for him. Hopefully he comes back a stronger and more mature person and moves on from it."
