Full-back flying as Saddlers look to extend unbeaten run at Crewe...THE SADDLERS head to Crewe Alexandra on Saturday in high spirits following a run of four games unbeaten.
"The dressing room is buzzing," admitted Andy Taylor. "We've dominated the last three or four games and Tuesday's result against Crawley had certainly been coming for a while.
"We managed to find that quality in the final third and we scored some good goals. At the same time we take great pride in the fact that we've kept four consecutive clean sheets.
"We defend from the front here and hopefully there will be a few more clean sheets in these remaining games."
Taylor found himself on the scoresheet in the last game, albeit with the aid of a deflection, as we shared the goals around.
"That was 100% my goal," he insisted. "It was flying straight in, although I have to admit that it may have taken a slight deflection at some point along the way!
"I like to get forward as much as I can and the lads know that I am never shy to have a shot. I was overdue a goal, so I am claiming that one.
"It was good to see us share the goals around on Tuesday and that is something that we need to do if we are to be successful.
"These last two wins have given us a bit of a cushion now; to be fair we've always felt that we shouldn't be anywhere near the relegation zone, but the League table doesn't lie.
"We've always believed that our performances will lead to points and the aim now is to get as many points as we can from these final games and finish as high up the table as possible.
"We know we should have more points on the board than we have, but all we can do is focus on a strong finish. It's in our hands now and we're ready for two difficult away games coming up.
"We will show both Crewe and then Swindon on Tuesday the respect that they deserve, but we will be looking to put our stamp on each game and carry on where we left off on Tuesday.
"There's a lot of confidence amongst the lads and a real determination to extend this unbeaten run."
