Johnson excited by Saddlers challenge

12 September 2018

Defender Connor Johnson is excited about what the season could bring for him while on loan with Dean Keates’ side.

The centre-half moved across the Midlands on loan deadline day, along with fellow Wolves man Connor Ronan.

At the age of 20, this is Johnson’s second spell away from the Premier League side but his first time in the Football League.

And the defender is looking forward to the opportunities this loan move may give him.

“It is a great opportunity for me,” he said.

“If I can come in and get as many minutes under my belt as possible and try and bring something to the team then that’s good for me.

“It is very different coming out on loan. I have been with Wolves for about four years now so I have been in my comfort zone there because you get to know everyone and you know how it all works.

“It is good to come out and meet different people and find different ways of playing.

“It will be a lot different here than it is with the Under-23s. It is a test I am excited about, when I am called upon, if I am called upon.

“It is a lot more physical, even from playing in the Checkatrade Trophy game against Burton Albion. There is a lot more running, there is more demand from you as a player.

“In the 23s you can sit back and play a little bit as you can have the ball in front of you but here it is more physically demanding because you are playing against men, they’re stronger players.

“I have to learn how to play in different ways which will be good for me.”
