Nurse finding his feet at the Banks's Stadium

20 October 2020

Walsall defender George Nurse feels he’s starting to find his feet at the Banks’s Stadium.

The left-back, who joined on loan from Bristol City back in August, has featured in each of the Saddlers’ last five matches in all competitions

Nurse revealed he has been welcomed into what was already a tight-knit dressing room with open arms and feels his recent run of games has helped him progress.

“I think I’ve found my feet a bit,” said Nurse. “Getting a constant run of games helps and I’m enjoying my football at the minute so hopefully that can continue.

“I think just spending time with the boys and being in and around the training ground has also helped. I’ve got to know a few boys now and I’ve settled in well.

“It’s not easy coming into a new changing room when the boys have been together for a while but they’ve all welcomed me brilliantly and I couldn’t have asked for anymore.”

The games continue to come thick and fast as the Saddlers travel to Bradford City tonight where they will be looking to get their first away win of the season and extend their unbeaten league run to 12.

Nurse admitted given the hectic schedule, players may be rested at points along the way but he is keen to keep his place in the starting XI for as many games as possible.

“This season’s a bit of a mad one and the games are thick and fast and it’s good to have that versatility in the team,” Nurse commented.

“People need to step up and I want to stay in the team as long as I can but if I need to be rested, that’s what I have to do.

“They’re (Bradford) a good team and like every game in this league it will be a tough game. Hopefully we can go there, compete and come away with the three points.”
