Kinsella looking to get back on track

19 August 2022

Walsall midfielder Liam Kinsella is keen to get back on track quickly.

The Saddlers travel to Gillingham tomorrow, looking to bounce back from Tuesday’s defeat to Barrow.

The midweek setback was Michael Flynn’s side’s first reverse of the campaign and while Kinsella admitted the performance on Tuesday was below par, he’s been pleased with how the season has started and is looking to build momentum again and right the wrongs from Tuesday’s setback.

“We’ve gone through the game, know what we’ve done wrong and know where we can improve,” he said.

“It comes round quick, we’ve got a game on Saturday against Gillingham and we can put things right, get back on track and try and get towards the top of the table.

“It’s been a very good start. On Tuesday, we shouldn’t have put in a performance like that, especially first half the way we started.

“We’ve set our standards as a team and we were below par but it’s been a good start and we can certainly build on that start of the season we’ve had and take it into Saturday.”

While focusing on the busy start to the campaign for the Saddlers, Kinsella has also kept a close eye on his sister, Alice’s progress in the Gymnastics at both the Commonwealth Games and European Championships.

He managed to go and support her at the Commonwealth Games and was full of praise following a successful summer.

“She’s had a fantastic couple of weeks winning two medals at the Commonwealth Games and then going to the European Championships, getting two medals there as well – she’s over the moon,” he commented.

“I managed to get a ticket at the Commonwealth’s to go and watch her and she had a fantastic competition day when I went to watch her.

“It was a rollercoaster couple of weeks for her. She wanted to win stuff that she didn’t win and ended up winning stuff that she didn’t expect to win so all in all, it was a fantastic couple of weeks and she’s over the moon.

“She can have a good rest now before her next tournament in Liverpool.”
