Walsall midfielder Stuart Sinclair insists the squad won’t be getting carried away following their victory at Morecambe.
Sinclair scored what proved to be the winning goal in the Saddlers’ 1-0 win at Morecambe on Tuesday.
It was Walsall’s first win since the opening day but Sinclair was adamant the players will keep their feet on the ground going into Saturday’s game at home to Scunthorpe United.
“It’s three points but that’s all it is so we’re not going to get carried away,” Sinclair said.
“It was a huge game but in the grand scheme of the league, it’s just a game so we need to make sure that on Saturday we’re focused and can use it as stepping stone moving forwards.”
Sinclair felt the Saddlers played on the front foot against Morecambe and is now hoping the team can continue in the same vein.
“We soaked up a bit of pressure at the end but we’re away from home so that’s going to happen,” he explained.
“I thought it was a good, front-foot performance so if we can keep doing that we’ll be looking upwards.
“We’ve been starting games really well but it’s just making sure we carry that on and keep pushing forwards for the whole 90 minutes.”
The midfielder also looked ahead to this weekend’s game against Scunthorpe.
He sees it as a vital game for the Saddlers and is keen for the team to start picking up more points at home.
“I think they’ve picked up four points in the last two games so it’s a big clash,” he commented.
“We’ve got to make our home stadium a fortress and start performing so it’s a great game to do that.”
