Walsall midfielder Stuart Sinclair has called for everyone to stick together and believes the team aren’t too far away from getting positive results.
The Saddlers have lost their last two games in Sky Bet League Two and will be looking to get back to winning ways when they take on Coventry City in the Leasing.com Trophy this evening.
Sinclair feels hard work and a united front is key to turning results around but believes they aren’t too far away.
“As you can see it’s nearly there, we’re so close,” said Sinclair.
“We’ve just got to keep working hard on the training ground, keep creating those partnerships and the partnerships are hard to create so it does take time, especially forwards because a lot of it is off the cuff.
“Making sure we stick together is incredibly important. We’ve got a lot of good young footballers and we need to make sure that as a club we stick together and encourage those young footballers to progress and show us what they have.”
The 31-year-old is pleased that the Saddlers can quickly return to action with tonight’s trip to St Andrews Trillion Trophy Stadium.
Sinclair enjoyed a run to the semi-finals of last season’s competition with Bristol Rovers and is keen to progress in the competition and is fully focused on tonight’s encounter.
“It’s nice just to get back on the pitch and wash yourself away from it,” he commented.
“We got to the semi-finals at Bristol Rovers and it’s a chance to get to Wembley and who doesn’t want to play at Wembley?”
Walsall’s latest signing Rory Gaffney could be involved against Coventry this evening.
Sinclair played with Gaffney at Bristol Rovers and believes he will be a great addition to the squad and will bring a lot of positive things to the team.
“He’ll bring hard work and more importantly a forward threat so he’s a massive addition to the squad,” said Sinclair.
“I’m looking forward to seeing him and catching up so that’s a really good signing for the club.
“This is what we need, we need competition and make sure that we’re on our toes every single minute so we need to make sure the squad’s healthy and everyone is fighting for positions.”
Kick off for tonight’s game is at 7.45pm.
