In-form front-man targets more goals...

WITH eight goals in his last six games, Will Grigg is a man on form.

His penalty in Tuesday's 2-0 victory over Tranmere Rovers made it 18 for the season for the youth team product who has now set his sights on becoming the first Walsall player to reach 20 goals since Jorge Leitao in 2000/01.

"It's not that long ago since my target was 15," he said with a wry smile. "But the goals are coming thick and fast at the moment and the target has to be 20 now.

"With eight games to go it is certainly achievable. I've had a few penalties just lately but I don't mind how they go in as long as they keep coming.

"I know it keeps being said, but we really do have to just keep taking each game at a time and if we continue to do our stuff we'll be in there with a chance.

"It's another tough game on Saturday against Crawley, but we'll be looking for a similar performance as Tuesday evening.

"Confidence is really high and teams are worried about us now. We know that if we keep working hard and doing the right things we'll be okay. The fans have also been brilliant and can make a massive difference.

"They have played their part in making Banks's Stadium a fortress and hopefully their backing will continue."

There will be over 1,000 youngsters and their parents in attendance on Saturday as we stage our second Schools Partner Day of the season. Thanks to the efforts of the Walsall FC Community Programme, children from 40 local schools have been given reduced price match tickets with their school also benefiting from a percentage of the sales.
