Brentford attacker on ‘brink’ of early return from injury with loan club in League Two

Brentford’s Lachlan Brook is on the ‘brink’ of a return to the action with loan club Crewe Alexandra.

The attacker joined the Railwaymen on loan in the last transfer window to go and get some first-team experience under his belt in League Two.

He made a dream start to life with the Cheshire side and scored on his debut away at Rochdale. However, after four more appearances, he suffered an ankle injury that looked like it had ruled him out for up to six weeks.


The forward has since made big strides on his road to recovery and is poised to be back available for Alex Morris’ side, with their official club website stating he is on the ‘brink’ on returning.

His loan boss has said,

“We are hopeful that Lachlan will be available for the following Saturday (17th) because he is coming along really quickly.”

Brentford swooped to sign Brook in October 2020 and he has since been a regular for their B team.

Prior to his move to England, he played in his native Australia for Adelaide United and went back there on loan earlier this year.

He is now looking to make a name for himself in the Football League with Crewe and is making great progress on the injury front.
