Caolan Lavery looking to kick on following his goal against Cheltenham

18 February 2021

Saddlers striker Caolan Lavery admitted that he is looking forward to working with new Head Coach Brian Dutton and that he is now ready to push on and score more goals following his first goal in three months against Cheltenham Town on Tuesday night.

The 28-year-old scored his fifth goal of the season in Tuesday night’s 2-1 defeat against Cheltenham but despite that and the short amount of time the team have had working with Dutton in his new role, Lavery said that you can already see differences in the style of play.

"We've not had much of a chance to work on things but he's already given us bits and pieces that he wants us to work on,” Lavery said.

"You can see already that we've had a lot more passes that what we usually do.

"It's going to take time but we're already looking forward to it.

“I suppose you can say that it is a weight off my shoulders to score. It's obviously been a frustrating season for me personally.

"I've not played as much as I want to but I've been patient and taken a chance when I got it.

"I'm looking to build on that. I'm ready to push on and help the lads as much as I can.

"I want to be the main striker for this team, I've always wanted that.

"I thought I finished last season quite well and now I want to push on. I want to score goals for this team.

"I want us to do well collectively. I'm looking forward to seeing what happens.

"There are other strikers here though so I will have to stay on my toes and keep the shirt if I have it.”
