PRE-MATCH | Rose confident Saddlers' quality will shine

8 October 2021

Walsall goalkeeper Jack Rose backs the players’ quality to shine through as they look to return to winning ways against Salford City.

The Saddlers will be looking to build on last week’s draw at Exeter City and Tuesday’s penalty shootout victory over Northampton Town tomorrow.

Rose has faith in the ability of the team from what he has seen in training and hopes they can impose themselves on Salford who he believes will provide Matt Taylor’s men with a difficult challenge.

“Every game is a tough game,” Rose insists.

“We do our video research; we know the way that they’ll be playing and we’ll play our game as well. We’ll be looking to make an impression and we’ll be looking to get a good result from the game.

“Everyone knows their worth as a player and everyone can see the quality that we possess in training.

“It might be difficult for outsiders looking in but we see each other every day, we see the sessions, we see all the training and the quality in the group.

“We’re not getting strung up about where results are coming from. We know results will come if we keep working hard, keep listening to the points that are made to each other because the quality is there.”

Rose deputised against Northampton while Carl Rushworth was away on international duty.

The on-loan Brighton & Hove Albion man will also miss tomorrow’s match and Rose is expected to step in again.

The former Southampton keeper has enjoyed working with Rushworth and feels they are pushing each other well.

“It’s always good to have competition,” he said.

“We push each other, we work well together and we both train really hard and ultimately it’s down to the gaffer who he puts in and whenever I get the call, I’m ready to go.”
