Flynn keen to end on a high on the road

29 April 2022

Walsall Head Coach Michael Flynn is keen to improve on his personal record at Colchester United as he aims to end on a high away from home this season.

The Saddlers will be looking for their first away win since February and make it back-to-back wins following last weekend’s victory over Port Vale.

Flynn won his first away game in charge against Forest Green and is looking to sign off on the road in similar fashion having picked up three draws and four defeats away from home since then.

“I’ve said the away form has been too indifferent all season but I’m concentrating on since I’ve been here," he said. 

“I want the players to show some consistency. It’s not an easy place to go, I’ve never had a particularly good record down there as a player or manager so I want to change that and finish the last away game of the season with a win like I started with my first away game with so it would be a good end to the travels since I’ve been here.”

Walsall have 53 points and are 14th in Sky Bet League Two with two games remaining.

While there is little to play for in terms of league position, Flynn remains focused on trying to pick up six points from the final two matches of the campaign.

“For me, it’s about winning and getting the three points,” he insists.

“Everything else that comes with that is the added bonus. You’re putting a smile on the fans faces, you’re creating a buzz around the place, it keeps the chairman happy, it keeps the sponsors happy and it keeps me happy.

“I want to win football matches and that’s what we’ll be trying to do. That’s what it’s about, there’s no better feeling in sport than winning a football match.”
