Adebayo aiming to top Walsall's scoring charts

10 March 2020

Walsall striker Elijah Adebayo is looking to overtake Caolan Lavery and Josh Gordon in the scoring charts.

The 22-year-old's brace against Exeter City on Saturday took his tally to eight for the season, two behind Lavery and four behind Gordon.

Adebayo says the competition between the trio is healthy but he’s determined to overtake the duo and top the Saddlers scorers list.

"It's a good race,” said Adebayo.

“Flash is ahead and I've told him I'm going to catch him but he doesn't think so.

"We all get on and we all have different aspects of our game that we bring to the team.

"We all know what we have to do, we know we're doing it for the team.

"If someone isn't doing it, someone else will come on and do it - there's a good bond between us three.”

Adebayo has been pleased with his and the team’s form in recent weeks.

He believes hard work has been key to the upturn in form and feels the squad have clicked.

"I couldn't really tell you what the formula is, we've just used the confidence in the camp and everyone has finally gelled - you can see that progression,” he explained.

"We've used every game as it comes, one by one, to take what we can and leave it all out on the pitch.

"Don't leave the pitch thinking we could have given more, everyone giving 100 per cent out there.

"Sometimes we can be better with the ball but the hard work and desire is there, hard work beats talent at the end of the day.

"That's the main thing, if everyone works hard then other qualities will come out.”
