Conor Wilkinson looking to continue fine away form

26 November 2021

Saddlers striker Conor Wilkinson is hoping the side can continue their fine away form when they take on Carlisle United on Saturday afternoon.

If the team can avoid defeat at the weekend at Brunton Park, they can stretch their unbeaten run to eight games away from home following four wins and three draws in their last seven games. 

And Wilkinson, who is looking to play his third game in a week following his return from injury, is looking to continue the run of impressive form.

“I feel like the win on Tuesday was thoroughly deserved,” said Wilkinson. “We knew what was in front of us, Port Vale are good at what they do and they’ve made a good start to the season. 

“To a man we dug in and left everything on the pitch and got our just rewards.

“The away support and following from Tuesday is probably the best I’ve had in my career to date. They were singing constantly for 90 minutes and they drove us on to get the win.

“I feel like we’re coming together well now. Everyone knows everybody’s strengths and weaknesses and we really dug in to get that result and it meant a lot to everyone at the club and the players and hopefully we can back this up against Carlisle on Saturday.

“Every game is different and Saturday will be tough but we’ll be ready for the challenge.

“I think Saturday’s game will be similar to Tuesday, we’ll have to go there and be good defensively first and foremost and then use of qualities on an attacking front and hopefully come back home with another three points.”
