Blackett-Taylor: positive vibes in Saddlers camp

29 March 2019

On-loan winger Corey Blackett-Taylor says there are “positive vibes” in the Saddlers' camp ahead of the trip to Doncaster Rovers.

Walsall head to the Keepmoat Stadium without a win in three games but the 21-year-old says communication has been the key to making sure training standards don't slip.

“We need to keep talking as a group and keep the positive vibes around,” said Blackett-Taylor. 

“There are still positive vibes around the place and I feel in the group we’ve been speaking about things more.

“We’re making sure we’re all still communicating in training, making sure we’re not letting the standards slip.

“I feel we’ve got more than enough in the dressing room to make sure we get through.”

Blackett-Taylor hasn’t just sat back during his time on loan with the Saddlers.

Prior to the Portsmouth game, the Aston Villa winger approached manager Dean Keates to see if there was anything extra he could be doing for the team.

“I wanted to know if there was anything I could do to change anything in the team selection, just to make sure I was doing everything right,” he continued.

“He said I was doing everything right, I just had to be patient.

“In that game [Portsmouth], I felt like I showed a bit more of what I can do. It made him change the team around and I feel I took my chance.

“I’m looking to keep playing, expressing myself and hopefully I can stay in the team.”
