Leahy set to make 100th Walsall appearance

5 April 2019

Luke Leahy could make his 100th appearance for the Saddlers in tomorrow’s match against Oxford.

The 26-year-old has been a virtual ever-present since signing from Falkirk in June 2017 – and the left-back is proud to be closing in on the landmark.

“It’ll be 100 games for me if I am selected,” he said. “That is brilliant for me.

“I came down here 18 months ago just trying to settle down and just play here and there because I was new to it all.

“To play 100 games in under two seasons is a massive achievement for myself.”

The Coventry-born full-back’s sole focus is making sure the Saddlers stay in League One – and is hoping the team can draw on last year’s experience.

“We did it last season and I am very confident we will do it again this season,” he added.

“We have been in this situation before and we know how to deal with it.

“Positive energy is the main thing. You need to come into training with a smile on your face. If you train hard Monday to Friday, then Saturday will take care of itself.

“It’s all about sticking together now more than ever. We have to believe in what we are doing.

“Before the Doncaster game, we had three good performances and we have to try and build off those but we have to get results.

“We have got to find a way to start winning games because we haven’t been doing that recently. We have to keep believing – it isn’t over and done with yet.

“There are still a lot of teams down there in the same place we are in so we have now got to rise above it and we have to start with three points on Saturday.”
