Flynn calls on Saddlers to bring their A-game at Doncaster

1 December 2022

Walsall Head Coach Michael Flynn says his team will need to be at their best if they’re to come away with three points against Doncaster Rovers tomorrow evening.

The Saddlers will be looking to stretch their unbeaten run to eight in all competitions as they take on a Rovers side who sit just a point and a place above them in the Sky Bet League Two table.

Flynn has been pleased with how his team have been playing lately but is expecting a tough challenge against a team who have just come down from League One and are finding their feet under the recently appointed Danny Schofield.

“They’ve got good players,” Flynn said.

“Danny’s come in, he’s trying to get his own philosophies across now I’m sure. Any game in this league is tough, they’ve not long come down from League One so we’re expecting a really tough evening.

“We need to be at our best, I say it week in, week out. We need to cut out mistakes and take our chances and once we do that, we’re a very good team.

“I’m pleased with how it’s going at the minute but it’s still early days and we can still only improve.”

The Saddlers have won their last two matches, both with dramatic late winners.

Last weekend saw Flynn’s men progress to the third round of the Emirates FA Cup.

The draw for the next round has been made and Walsall will travel to either Stockport County or League One side Charlton Athletic.

Flynn believes all three clubs will sense a great opportunity to reach the fourth round though he would have like to have been drawn at the Poundland Bescot Stadium.

“I’m a little bit disappointed it wasn’t at home,” Flynn commented.

“It gives each of the three teams involved, we don’t know who we’ll be playing yet, but they’ll all fancy our chances of getting to the fourth round, we’re no different.

“We want to have a good go at it and then hopefully get a nice, plum home draw.”
