Gordon looking for complete performance

22 October 2019

Walsall striker Josh Gordon is keen to see the Saddlers put in a complete 90 minute performance.

Darrell Clarke’s men take on Oldham Athletic at Boundary Park tonight as they look to end a run of three successive defeats.

Walsall ended a poor run earlier in the season with a victory against Morecambe and Gordon feels a similar performance tonight at Oldham could have the same effect.

“We need to change what’s been going on and that’s what happened last time,” Gordon said.

“It’s a Tuesday game, quick turnaround. It’s about starting again so hopefully we can get something out of the game.

“We’ve got to go there and score, nulify them. Whether that means scoring first or scoring in the 90th minute we’ve got to keep going for the whole 90 minutes.”

A positive to come from the defeat against Cheltenham was the former Leicester City striker’s performance and first goal of the season from the penalty spot.

He is now looking to kick on and go on a scoring run but he was pleased to see his hard work on the training pitch pay off.

“I practice them every day in training,” he stated.

 “I’ve been desperate to get a goal. I’ve been close, I’ve hit the post, had deflections and there was the one in the first half (on Saturday) that trickled past the post. I just picked the ball up and did what I do in training and put it in the corner.”

“The main thing is trying to get points on the board. You’ve just got to work hard for the team and if you score, you score. Hopefully I’ll get some more now.”

Saddlers fans can still buy tickets from Oldham’s ticket office for this evening’s game.
