Emmanuel Osadebe believes confident changing room is the key to success

17 March 2022

Saddlers midfielder Emmanuel Osadebe believes that the confidence in the changing room is being shown on the pitch with the positive results that are being picked up by the team at the moment.

Michael Flynn’s side won their fourth home game on the bounce on Tuesday night against Oldham Athletic, a game which Osadebe starred in with a goal and an assist to his name, and they are now also unbeaten in five league games.

“I thought that we didn’t start the game to well but after the first 10 or 15 minutes, we imposed ourselves on the game and we dominated the ball,” he began.

“They were a good team to be fair but I got the equaliser and then in the second half we played very well, we were on at them and then there was a time where we had to hold it together.

“Overall it was a good game, it was a good three points and we are delighted with that.

“It is a confident changing room at the moment and since the gaffer has come in, he has set the standard as to what he wants and we have now set our standards and we are not going to let them drop off.

“The results are showing and even the boys who are coming on at the moment have been fantastic.

“Since Devante has been here and even Brendan Kiernan coming on, they have been great and everyone is pulling together and we are all helping each other and the results are showing.”

Tuesday night’s win over Oldham was the first time since March 2017 that the Saddlers had registered four straight home wins and Osadebe praised the supporters for their hand in making the Banks’s a tough place to come to at the moment.

“Our home ground is becoming a tough place to come to and that is how it should be,” he continued.

“When we play at home, we should be winning games and the fans have really helped us with that.

“The way they have been has helped us a lot and there are a lot of positives to take and the home games are beginning to feel a lot better now.”
