White aiming to utilise his experience

6 October 2020

Walsall defender Hayden White is hoping his League Two experience will be a valuable asset to the team.

The right-back made his first league start for the Saddlers against Forest Green Rovers at the weekend.

The 25-year-old had a successful three years in League Two with Mansfield Town and after helping the team battle to a point against Rovers.

Having improved on his fitness since his arrival, he now feels he can utilise his knowledge of the division to help some of the less experienced players in the team.

“I’ve got a lot of experience in this league so that’s what I’m trying to bring in the dressing room,” said White.

“I know the dressing room is quite young but I’m sure I can be called upon to help the younger lads.

“I’ve enjoyed it. I’ve recently moved up as well so that’s good.

“I’ve been doing a lot of fitness work behind the scenes. The gaffer pulled me and told me that he was going to put me in. I’m not happy with the collective performance but satisfied with my own performance dare I say so it’s one of many I hope.”

White admitted that the Saddlers were below par against Forest Green but insists the team will improve their performance levels as they prepare for three home games in a week.

“It’s not the best performance,” White admitted. “We know we need to be a lot better than that. We just need to pick up points, we were lucky maybe but I think we can improve on that and I’m sure we will.

“We didn’t get going. You can have those games throughout the season so let’s hope it was a one off.”
