Clarke looks ahead to Port Vale test

6 December 2019

Walsall boss Darrell Clarke insists his side will go to Port Vale full of confidence as they look to climb up the Sky Bet League Two table.

Clarke will take his team to Vale Park for their first league away game in over a month as they return to league action following two cup ties over the past week. 

John Askey’s side are ninth in League Two and are unbeaten at home so far this season. The Saddlers boss is expecting a difficult game but insists his side will go their full of confidence.

"They have a bit of stability now, they've done ok, had a reasonable start,” he commented. 

"But like I keep saying, the lines in League Two are very small. 

"Teams at the top can easily be beaten, no problem about that. 

"So we just keep focusing. 

"We know it'll be a tough game, they have a decent home record but we go there with plenty of confidence.

"It's set up for a normal League Two encounter, we want to go there and be positive and try and win the game."

Clarke also provided an update on Callum Cockerill-Mollett who limped off after 10 minutes against Chelsea Under 21s on Tuesday evening and looked in considerable discomfort and the Saddlers boss provided an early update on his condition.

“It doesn't look as bad as first feared,” Clarke revealed.

“It was an awkward one, he's caught it on the end of his toe but he’s walking.

"I don't normally like giving injury information out but he won't be fit for Saturday.”
