Kinsella eyeing positive finish

5 May 2021

Walsall midfielder Liam Kinsella is eyeing a positive finish to the season after last weekend’s disappointing defeat to Morecambe.

The Saddlers fell to a frustrating 2-0 defeat in their final home game at the Banks’s Stadium on Saturday despite an encouraging first half performance.

Brian Dutton’s side travel to Carlisle United this weekend as the 2020/21 season draws to a close and Kinsella is keen to end a difficult campaign on a high.

“It’s been a tough season,” he admitted.

“We’ve got one week left and we want to end the season with a win and that’s what we’re going to do.

“We’re going to work hard in the last week, go to Carlisle and put in a performance to try and get three points.”

“You’ve got to look back and think it was a good performance but you haven’t come away with anything.

"The lads are a fantastic bunch, we’re confident when we go out there and have good spirit so we will go into the week positive and try to get three points against Carlisle.”

Kinsella, who was voted as the Supporter’s Player of the Year for the 2020/21 season, has played alongside fellow academy graduate and newly crowned Young Player of the Year Sam Perry in recent weeks.

The 25-year-old has enjoyed playing alongside Perry and has been impressed with the young players in the team who he believes have bright futures ahead of them.

“It makes my job easier, Sam’s been excellent this season and he’s played very well,” Kinsella said.

“Ty (Tyreik Wright) as well, he’s a fantastic talent and he’ll go far in the game and both were brilliant and they’ve been fantastic this season.”
