Sadler: 'There’s always something to play for'

6 March 2020

Walsall defender Mat Sadler insists the Saddlers will take each game as it comes as they look to have a strong finish to the League Two season.

The Saddlers currently lie in 15th place with 11 games remaining and will be looking to climb the table.

Sadler is focused on tomorrow’s game against high-flying Exeter City tomorrow and stressed there is still plenty to play for this season.

“First and foremost, it’s just finishing as high as you can,” Sadler said.

“Every time you step out there or step out onto the training pitch, there’s always something to play for and there’s always someone to impress.

“In terms of league position we’ve seen how the season’s played out, it’s had its up and had its downs so for us now it’s to finish as high as we possibly can and take that momentum into the next season but we just want to play as well as we possibly can and pick up as many points as we can between now and the end of the season.

 “We’re just desperate to win the next game and it’s a tough game against a team who have been right up there all season fighting for the top three positions, which is where we want to be, where the football club wants to be and it’s a good test for us.”

After a huge overhaul of players in the summer and a difficult start to the season, Sadler feels the team has made significant progress over recent months and feels there are plenty of reasons to be positive.

“Without doubt, we can all see improvements,” he commented.

“We can all see signs of positivity returning and that’s been echoed with some of the support getting right behind us.

“In the first half of the season there was an air of ‘we’re finding it tough here’ and as fans I think they were finding it tough as well, they just wanted to see us win games and show that positivity and I think we’re seeing that in the second half of the season.

there was something a few games ago about the first 17 game to the second 17 games so you can’t ignore that, it’s quite a significant upturn in form which you look at the face of it and you wish you picked up more points from that initial start.”
