Scarr: 'It's good that we're versatile'

20 September 2019

Walsall defender Dan Scarr says he has felt comfortable playing in both a back three and a back four so far this season.

The defender has featured in all nine league games to date and has put in a number of solid performances for the Saddlers.

Darrell Clarke has deployed both a back three and a back four this campaign.

Scarr says the team are comfortable playing both and he has no personal preference out of the two.

“I don’t really mind,” he said.

“The personnel that slot in there all know their jobs and everyone works together quite well so I think it’s good to be versatile depending on what team you’re playing.

“We all build partnerships, we work on it in training so everyone feels comfortable whoever’s in the back line.”

Scarr helped Walsall to their fifth clean sheet of the season in all competitions in the Saddlers’ 1-0 victory at Morecambe on Tuesday evening.

The 24-year-old is keen to build on that win but felt the result had been coming.

“I think it was just a matter of time,” he commented.

“We’ve been probing and the defence has been quite decent so it was only a matter of time.

“We can’t just leave it there, we have to build on it and put together some sort of run.

“Regardless, a Tuesday night at Morecambe is always a tough game so to get three points there regardless of our form is a big thing but we needed it.”

Walsall take on Scunthorpe at the Banks’s Stadium tomorrow afternoon.

Scarr is expecting a difficult game and believes the Iron have some good players within their ranks.

“They’ve got a good team on paper,” said Scarr.

“It just hasn’t really clicked for them so far. We know it’ll be a tough game but I’m looking forward to it.”
