Clarke pleased to be supporting MIND against Northampton

14 February 2020

Walsall boss Darrell Clarke is pleased to be supporting mental health charity MIND at today's game against Northampton Town.

The Saddlers players will be warming up in t-shirts provided by MIND while there will also be bucket collections around the stadium at tomorrow’s match.

Clarke stressed the importance of raising awareness about mental health in football and is proud to be supporting MIND at tomorrow’s game.

“It’s something we’re very supportive and very aware of,” he said.

“It’s big style with a lot of things talking about players mental health and also managers and coach’s mental health.

“You’ve always got to have eyes on your players and your staff to make sure they’re in the right frame of mind and see the signals. We’re delighted to support it.”

Walsall take on promotion chasing Northampton tomorrow as they look to build their last two results.

Clarke is looking forward to facing Northampton, who will provide a tough test for his team.

"They're right up there with the players they have in the group,” he added.

"It'll be a good challenge for ourselves but I get bored of saying it every week, there's no standout team for me in this division.

"The top teams have that little bit more consistency or quality at the top end of the pitch to win more games.

"Barring two or three occasions, where we've let ourselves down, we've been very competitive in each game and I imagine us to be very competitive on Saturday.”
