Adebayo looking to kick-on after scoring the winner at Vale Park

9 December 2019

Walsall striker Elijah Adebayo is hungry for more after scoring his third goal of the season on Saturday.

The 21-year-old scored the only goal of the game as the Saddlers recorded their fourth away league win of the season at Vale Park.

Adebayo was pleased to make an impact after being recalled into the starting XI and is looking to kick on and continue improving.

“I’m nowhere near where I need to be so it’s about putting those hours in at training everyday and trying to be the best that I can be,” he said.

“It will come but it’s about working hard.

“It’s been a tough couple of weeks for me. I’ve been trying to get back in, obviously the lads have been doing great as well so I was happy to get the nod and the goal has done me very well.”

Adebayo made his first start in four weeks on Saturday.

With four forwards jostling for places in the starting XI, competition for places is hot but Adebayo sees that as a positive.

“That’s what you’re in the business for – competition for places,” he stated.

“All of the strikers have been playing well in the last couple of weeks and it’s been tough to get in so when you do get your chance you’ve just got to make a statement or do the best you can so that you’re in the gaffer’s head for the next game.”
