Kiernan keen to keep chipping in

14 January 2022

Saddlers winger Brendan Kiernan is keen to continue chipping in with goals and being a creative influence in the team.

The 29-year-old has scored in three of his last four appearances with the latest coming last weekend against Stevenage.

Kiernan is enjoying his football at the Banks’s Stadium and with five goals to his name so far, he is keen to continue progressing into the second half of the campaign.

“It’s a good review for me at the half way point of the season,” he said.

“First and foremost, I want to be creating chances and then also chipping in with goals so it was good to come back at the weekend and get another goal.

"Hopefully I can keep that momentum going now.

“I think I am in a good environment at the moment and that is why we don’t let our heads drop when things don’t go well because we have got something that is good in the changing room.

“I have been feeding off that really and I have been getting my focus off that and off what we have got here.

“I have enjoyed who I have been going to battle with every week so it just makes a big difference when you enjoy who you are going into battle with because you can try and get the best football out of yourself.”

Walsall take on Nigel Clough’s Mansfield tomorrow afternoon.

The Stags have won eight of their last nine league matches so will be in confident mood and Kiernan has called on up the tempo and energy levels as they look to thwart their in-form opponents.

“They’re going to be in a good place of form but hopefully we can use that against them,” he commented.

“We need to come out with a high tempo, high energy and hopefully spoil the party a little bit.

“When we find our rhythm, we don’t really need to focus too much on the opposition but it is just us getting into that again and once we get that consistency, I think we are a team that is hard to stop.

"It just goes to show that it doesn’t take that much for a team to put a run together and get a bit of momentum.

“I think that Mansfield are a good way of looking at how quickly things can turn and that you can start getting into a rhythm.

“It is just about keeping the faith, keep believing and just knowing that that rhythm will come.”
