McDonald keen to build on impressive Tranmere display

8 December 2020

Walsall winger Wes McDonald is looking to build on his impressive performance against Tranmere Rovers and kick on for the rest of the season.

The 23-year-old scored a spectacular goal and provided an assist to help the Saddlers earn a 3-1 victory at Prenton Park on Saturday.

McDonald admitted that he hasn’t hit the numbers of goals and assists that he would have liked so far this season but he was pleased to make a key contribution at the weekend and is looking to continue in the same vein.

"It's been a slow start in terms of stats and getting numbers on the board,” McDonald admitted.

"But I continue working. (Against Tranmere) I got some numbers on the board and I'm looking to push on now.

"Get in the right areas and put it in.

"I came in and got it on my strongest foot, the right foot and made a bit of space for myself and got the shot off.”

While there were no Walsall fans in attendance, the Saddlers played in front of spectators for the first time since March with 2,000 Tranmere supporters inside Prenton Park.

Although he was disappointed Walsall fans weren’t able to attend, he enjoyed playing in front of a crowd again.

"It's nearly been a year since we've had some fans,” said McDonald.

"Even though they weren't our fans, as soon as I got out there and heard them I thought 'It's game on'.

"We're away from home so all the boys knew what we were going to get, but at the end of the day it's about what happens on the pitch.”

The Saddlers now turn their attention to Saturday’s match against Bolton Wanderers.
