McDonald salutes clinical Collison
West Ham United,
West Ham assistant manager Neil McDonald paid tribute to Jack Collison after his brace in the 2-0 play-off win at Cardiff.
Collison, who has fought off a persistent knee injury to play a key role in the Hammers' battle for promotion to the Barclays Premier League this season, netted twice in the opening period at the Cardiff City Stadium to help West Ham take a giant stride towards a Wembley final and potential elevation into the top flight. And McDonald recognised his performance in south Wales as pivotal, as the Hammers set themselves up nicely for the return fixture at Upton Park on Monday. "He's done fantastically well and he's taken his goals really, really well," he said. "He's a goalscoring midfield player, very comfortable on the ball and that's another two to his tally which is great. "We've asked everybody to contribute with the goals and he's certainly done that here and he's done very, very well."
