Clarke: "Every game is huge"

22 November 2019

Walsall boss Darrell Clarke insists every game is a big game ahead of tomorrow’s visit of Stevenage.

The Saddlers will be looking for their fourth consecutive win in all competitions when they take on Mark Sampson’s side, who sit bottom of Sky Bet League Two.

Walsall are 21st, five points clear of their opponents and they have the opportunity to give themselves more breathing space on Saturday but Clarke is treating the game like he would any other.

"It's way too early to be calling it a huge game to be honest,” he said.

"Every game for me is a huge game. 

"There's loads of games left in the season and it's a chance to get three points on the board. 

"I've watched a lot of Stevenage, like I do with every opposition, and there' nothing in the league. 

"I keep saying this, bottom can beat top not a problem. 

"It's the fine lines. They gave Peterborough a great game in mid-week. 

"It'll be a tough game and we won't be turning up expecting to win that's for sure, we'll have to earn the right to win.”

The last three victories have seen different types of performances. The Saddlers blitzed Forest Green and came out all guns blazing against Cambridge but they had to be patient in their 1-0 victory over Darlington in midweek.

Clarke has called for his side to continue being versatile in and is keen to see them pick up results, whatever it takes.

"You have to find different ways to win football games,” Clarke commented.

"Whether it's coming from behind to win or getting an early goal, you just have to win.” 

"Saturday I can guarantee will probably be totally different to the Cambridge game.” 

Tickets are still available for tomorrow’s game.
