Walsall midfielder Stuart Sinclair insists the team are fully focused ahead of today’s Sky Bet League Two clash with Macclesfield Town.
The Saddlers return to the Banks’s following last week’s victory at Port Vale and go into the game having built a bit of momentum in recent weeks.
Walsall have lost just one of their last eight matches but Sinclair is keen for the team to do more at home and has stressed the Saddlers are prepared to do just that against Macclesfield.
“It’s the old cliché of when you cross the white line, it’s only the football that matters really,” Sinclair said.
“I still don’t think that we have done what we need to do at home in terms of our performances so we have to make sure we keep trying to push towards where we want to be.
“I think it’s going to be an interesting game because they have got a lot going on at the club at the moment so I am not sure what type of vibe they are going to have if I’m honest with you because of all of the ups and downs they have had.
“We have to make sure we are fully concentrated in the game and that we impose our last few performances on them and in the game and make sure we get a result for our fans.”
Sinclair made his much-anticipated return from injury at Vale Park last week and is delighted to be out on the pitch, but admitted he found life difficult watching on from the sidelines.
“It’s horrendous being on the sidelines with an injury,” he commented.
“I don’t begrudge the fans because it is hard watching from the stands week in, week out. I find it so hard not being able to play because I can’t sit still. It was so good being back out there last weekend against Port Vale being able to do what I need to do for the team and use all my energy to help us get the three points that we rightly deserved in the end.”
