McDonald insists there is more to come

17 January 2020

Walsall winger Wes McDonald insists there is more to come from him as he looks to build on a fine first six months at the Banks’s Stadium.

The 22-year-old recently signed an 18-month contract last week and is now looking to kick on in a Saddlers shirt.

McDonald feels that he has ‘come into his own’ at the Banks’s Stadium and is excited about the future.

“This is my first full season in first team football. I’m happy with what I’ve done and I’ve shown everyone what I can do but there is still more to come from me,” said McDonald.

“I’m still progressing, still learning and listening to the coaches. I just want to add to what I’ve done. I’ve got five goals; a few assists and I want to just continue doing that and get numbers on the board.

“I’m 22, I’m at a great club, I really enjoy playing and Walsall are getting the best out of me so I want to continue learning and delivering.

“It’s my first full season and I feel like I’ve come into my own. I still think there’s a lot more I can give and there’s still a lot more to come.”

McDonald is now focused on helping the Saddlers bounce back from their defeat against Cheltenham Town when they take on Crawley Town tomorrow.

The winger netted his first professional goal against the Red Devils back in September.

He’s expecting a fast-paced game and stressed the importance of the match given how close the two sides are in the table.

“They’re only a place below us so it’s going to be a big game. We’re at home so we want to get the three points and crack on. We want to bounce back, we’re at home, the crowd will be behind us and we want to give the fans a good victory.

“I’m expecting a fast tempo game, they’ve got a few individuals that are very attack minded so I think they’re going to come here and bring it to us but we’ve got to show what we can do.”
