Jarvis: Saddlers can cause an upset

5 January 2019

New Saddlers winger Matt Jarvis believes the team has what it takes to cause an upset when they take on Bolton Wanderers in the FA Cup later today.

The 32-year-old, who joined the club on January 1st as the first signing of the winter transfer window, will be involved for the first time this weekend at the University of Bolton Stadium.

And after watching the game against Charlton Athletic on the day he signed, Jarvis feels there is a good chance of progression to the fourth round of the prestigious competition.

“I went to watch the game against Charlton and the lads did really well,” said Jarvis.

"They passed the ball around well and they created lots of chances and hopefully I can now help them get up the league. 

“It’s a very young squad so hopefully I can help them out in different situations and use my experience to improve the team. 

“In the second half against Charlton the team played really well and going into this game, it’s almost a free hit.

“We’re going to a bigger team and we are looking to prove ourselves against them and we need to make sure we give everything because it’s a cup game.

“It’s a game that could go either way.

“They had a bad result in the week so they could either be going into the game at full throttle, which would make it an extremely difficult game, or they will change it up and giving opportunities to players who haven’t been playing. That could be a difficult challenge in itself.

“It’s a game that everyone is looking forward to and it’s a good one to start with.”
