Walsall striker Josh Gordon feels he’s building a strong relationship with strike partner Caolan Lavery.
The 25-year-old scored the only goal of the game as the Saddlers beat Leyton Orient on New Year’s Day.
Gordon has enjoyed playing with the Lavery and revealed the Northern Irishman is claiming the assist for his goal.
“Lavery said it was a ‘Heskey’ flick on so he’s claiming it,” Gordon revealed.
“I like playing with Lavs.
“We work well together but it’s like I say with all the strikers whoever we play with you start to build relationships the more you play but at the minute, Lavs and I have been starting frequently and it’s working.”
The Saddlers bounced straight back from their defeat to Carlisle United by beating Leyton Orient and Gordon feels the team are starting to develop some consistency after a run of just two defeats from their last 13 outings in all competitions.
“We had a bit of a run but obviously the game against Carlisle was a bit of a downer,” said Gordon.
“You’re starting to see performances out of the team so if we keep doing what we’re doing, doing them mental side as well as the manager has highlighted, it shows we can win games with 11 or 10 men.”
Walsall now turn their attention to Saturday’s trip to Salford City.
