Miller keen to kick on after adding goals to his total

5 October 2021

Walsall striker George Miller was delighted to add another two goals to his total against Exeter City on Saturday and is keen for both himself and the team to push on.

The 23-year-old took his tally to four for the club against the Grecians as the Saddlers picked up a point.

Miller feels the team are in a good position to start picking up more wins after Saturday’s draw and enjoyed the performance at Exeter after netting a brace.

“Scoring a penalty and then scoring in front of our fans is even better and you can celebrate a bit more and make sure they enjoy it,” Miller said.

“That’s what I’m here to do, score goals and help the team out as much as I can. We created so much more (against Exeter) and it was enjoyable to play in with a little tweak from the gaffer, I think it helped so much.

“We got it down, played and popped it about in midfield so if we can keep doing that, it’s going to help me and help the team because we’re going to create more and score more.

“We know that we’ve got enough in that dressing room, the gaffer knows and people watching know that we’ve got enough to turn teams over.”

The Saddlers make a swift return to action with a trip to Northampton Town this evening in the Papa John’s Trophy before hosting Salford City at the Banks’s Stadium in Sky Bet League Two.

Head Coach Matt Taylor felt his team performed well for large spells of the game and is now keen to see them show take those positives into tonight’s match and show that quality over 90 minutes.

“There are lots of things we can take into the upcoming games, we had a great training week and it’s no surprise that the players performed for large periods of that game (against Exeter) but we now have to put it together for 95 minutes and if we do that the players will get their just rewards,” Taylor said.

“We were exceptional at times in possession of the ball, we risked it in the right areas, we varied our play so there isn’t a huge amount I can be hugely disappointed with.

“In possession we picked up great positions, Jack started playing exceptionally well, it’s good to have Joss back in the team and put him and Paddy in a position where they’re able to release and able to be on the front foot.”
