Holden delighted to contribute with goal

14 December 2020

Walsall midfielder Rory Holden was pleased to see the set piece routine that led to his goal come off against Bolton Wanderers on Saturday.

Holden scored his third of the season after Wes McDonald set him up from a free-kick before he unleashed a rasping shot from 20-yards to give the Saddlers the lead.

The 23-year-old was delighted to contribute on Saturday and pleased to see the ball hit the back of the net.

“We worked on it all week and it was either myself or James Clarke,” Holden explained.

 “It fell to my left foot so I just hit it, hit and hope and it went in.”

“I’m happy to get three goals and as I said at the start of the season, if I can contribute as much as I can with goals and assists, I’ll try my best.”

“If I don’t score for the rest of the season and the team wins every game, I’ll still be happy. If I can contribute in other ways then happy days.”

The Saddlers now turn their attention to tonight’s trip to Oldham Athletic.

Holden is keen to help the Saddlers continue their winning run and push up the table but expects a difficult challenge at Boundary Park.  

“We know it will be a tough game but if we can implement our style of play early on, be tough to beat, be solid then we know we can create chances so hopefully we get a good result.”

“If you go on a run of four or five wins in a row, you can be right up there in the play-offs. We had a lot of draws at the start of the season but now we’re turning them into wins so if we can keep that going, we’ll be fine.”
