Three goals in last two games for front-man...

CRAIG Westcarr has admitted that he would have swapped his eighth goal of the season at the weekend for three points against Sheffield United.

The 28 year-old former Chesterfield man notched his fifth goal for The Saddlers since his arrival, initially on loan, in November but it wasn't enough to blunt The Blades.

"We were disappointed not to get the win in the end," he said. "I felt that we dominated large parts of the game and had the better chances.

"I was happy to score, of course, but I'm more disappointed that we couldn't take the three points on offer. I would have swapped my goal for those points."

Westcarr is pleased with his form since making his switch to Banks's Stadium a permanent one in January.

"I feel good and a lot fitter than I did when I first arrived here," he admitted. "I'm happy with my performances, but want to keep on improving. It was a boost to get my fifth goal for Walsall at the weekend and I am determined to add to that between now and the end of the season.

"The Gaffer has had great belief in me and I'd like to think that I am starting to pay him back now.

"As a team we're all focussing on winning these remaining three games and seeing where it takes us. The whole squad is playing well and showing people what we can do.

"It's about thinking positive and continuing to play like we have done. They are all big games coming up but we go into the with the confidence gained from a 13-match unbeaten run."
