Dan Scarr believes not having a game last weekend has given him more chance to settle into his new surroundings.
The 24-year-old could make his debut for Dean Keates’ side against Rochdale this weekend having joined the club on a two-and-a-half-year deal from Championship side Birmingham City.
With no game last weekend, Scarr is chomping at the bit to help the Saddlers push their way back up the league table and admits keeping clean sheets is his main goal.
“It’s been a good time to settle in,” said Scarr.
“We didn’t have a game at the weekend so we have had a few hard training sessions where you can get to know the lads a little bit more and work out how each other play and how we want to take it into the game.
“It’s been good since I have been here. We have been able to get to know each other and we have had a good week and we are feeling confident going into the game against Rochdale.
“It’s a massive game for us because they’re down there with us at the moment. It is one you look at thinking you need to take the three points.
“I want to work hard in training so that I am available for selection.
“Once I get into the team, I want to be able to keep my place, keep my shirt and keep fighting to be better for the team.
“I am a bit of a no-nonsense defender but when there is a chance to play football then I will look to play. I’ll be looking to keep clean sheets - that is my main goal.
“It’s time to keep it simple. Stop the goals going in and set up the attacks.
“Cooky [Andy Cook] has been in good form so if we can set up well defensively and give the rest of the team a foundation to go and push on, then we will be happy with that.
“We have got to be a little bit patient and keep working at it and will all come good.”
