Daniels keen to sign off with a win for the fans

6 May 2022

Walsall defender Donervon Daniels is hoping a positive result against Swindon Town will give supporters optimism for next season.

The Saddlers will be looking for a sixth home victory in seven when they take on a Swindon side who will be hoping to secure their place in the play-offs tomorrow afternoon.

Daniels, who signed a new deal with the club last week, has been pleased with the level of support since he arrived back in January and is keen to sign of the season with a victory for them.

“It’s the last chance to see the fans this season and we want to give them a good send off so they can have something to look forward to in the off-season when the club is announcing new signings or plans for the season ahead,” he said.

“We want to put in a performance that allows them to have some confidence going into next season.

“The home form has been really good, even from when I first came in my first game against Bradford, I felt like the fans were magnificent.

“They were loud, they encouraged us and that was a game I felt we could have won. Even going further on from that since the new gaffer’s come in, he’s galvanised the boys and had a response from the fans.

“They’ve turned out in their droves whether it’s home or away. We just have to really knuckle down in the off-season and into pre-season.

“It’s a job for the gaffer, the recruitment staff with the chairman to recruit the players that he wants to play the style of football that he hopes to play next year which I’m really looking forward to.”

The Saddlers suffered a disappointing 5-0 defeat in the reverse fixture back in February.

Daniels is hoping to right the wrongs from the previous fixture but has been impressed with what he has seen from Ben Garner’s side.

“Swindon are a very good team and play a really attractive style of football.

“You saw how they out passed us and out manoeuvred us, they technically and tactically master classed us when we played away and it’s a chance for us to learn from that and put that right again tomorrow.

“Swindon have been good throughout the course of the season; they deserve to be where they are and they should probably be a bit higher but tomorrow we go into that game confident and looking forward to the challenge.

“Playing in front of a decent crowd is always good and it’s one myself and I’m sure the boys are looking forward to.”
