Midfielder staying positive...

Captain Adam Chambers wants Walsall to put recent results behind them and approach the rest of the season with a positive mindset.

Despite being winless in six matches, the Saddlers are still fourth in League One, just five points off the automatic promotion places, with a game in hand.

This week has seen a change off the field, with Jon Whitney being appointed as interim head coach following Sean O’Driscoll’s departure.

And speaking ahead of this weekend’s match at Chesterfield, Chambers says everyone must look forward and that now is the time to “push on”.

“We’ve had a couple of changes this season but the important thing is that we’re in a good position still and we have to look forward,” he said.

“We can’t dwell on things that have happened in the past, we have to look forward and try to get some momentum back.

“There are a few games on this winless run where we could quite easily have won games. I don’t think there’s necessarily much to change.

“We need to be positive and drive ourselves forward for the remainder of the season. We’re looking to push on now.”

Walsall will be hoping to maintain their outstanding away record when we visit Danny Wilson’s Chesterfield tomorrow afternoon.

The Saddlers are unbeaten in seven away league matches – a run stretching back to November.

And although Chesterfield have improved of late – winning three in five - Chambers is confident we can record another positive result on the road.

“We know it’s not going to be an easy game but we’ll be looking to try to impose ourselves and get the win,” said Chambers.

“Teams are playing for a lot now at this stage of the season and I think they’ve changed a little bit since we last played them.

“We’re focused on this Saturday and we’ll be looking to try to perform and win the game. We’re confident if we perform to the best of our ability we can do that.”
