Clarke looking maintain consistency

24 January 2020

Walsall boss Darrell Clarke is looking to maintain consistency after a solid start to 2020.

The Saddlers have lost just two of their last 11 games in Sky Bet League Two and will be looking to make it back-to-back league wins when they take on Carlisle United at Brunton Park tomorrow.

Clarke is expecting a difficult game against the Cumbrians but is looking to build on last week’s victory over Crawley as they look to continue climbing up the league table.

"It's League Two isn't it, it's a competitive league,” said Clarke.

"I think we've been consistent now for the last 11 league games and we're trying to continue that.

"That starts on Saturday.

"Chris Beech is there, he's done well.

"They'd obviously like to be further up the table than what they are.

"We realise that any team in League Two can beat each other on the day.

"I don't think there's a lot between the top and the bottom, there's just more consistency at the top.

"We expect a tough encounter.”

Walsall are currently 12th in League Two while Carlisle currently lie in 21st.

Clarke insists he is only focused on the challenge at Carlisle and isn’t reading into the league table too much.

"I look to the next game,” he said.

"Everyone will tell you, I have no interest in that and I concentrate on the next game.

"When you programme your mindset to be like that and you programme your players to be like that, that always has to be the focus.

"We have to concentrate on our performance and the next project.

"I know it's boring but you crack on with it.”
