Birmingham City striker: I’m enjoying being Blues’ answer to Andres Iniesta!

If I can get goals then great.

But as long as we are winning and we are getting three points on the board the goals will come.

I am like the provider now, like the Iniesta. We want to better than so that in itself means the bar has been raised.

We want to do better than we did last year.

If we can get as many points on the board going into the winter period you just never know what can happen, he said.

Donaldson also described Blues decision to keep hold of wonder-kid Demarai Gray as very important.

We don’t want to lose our best players.

We have done all that preparation in pre-season and in the first four gamesyou don’t want anything to disrupt that, he added.9


Birmingham City striker Clayton Donaldson is happy to be the Iniesta of Gary Rowetts in-form side. I just want to play my part for the team and if it’s assisting goals then great.

The forward, Blues top scorer last campaign with 16 goals in all competitions, revealed that the clubs impressive start has raised expectations.

Rowett’s men are unbeaten so far and sit in 7 place after two wins and two draws.

We finished well last year and finished tenth.

Donaldson compared himself with the Barcelona star as he hasnt troubled the scoresheet this season, instead turning provider by notching up four assists.

Assists are the next best thing but as long as the team is winning and I can contribute to that then great, he said
