Hutchinson keen to build on recent momentum

9 November 2022

Isaac Hutchinson is delighted with the momentum being created under Head Coach Michael Flynn as the Saddlers are reaping the rewards of his creative freedom.

As the creative spark in the side, with a free role, team cohesion on the pitch is vital to Hutchinson's success. After Walsall's turbulent start to the season, the midfielder believes that the squad is now maturing into a side with great potential.

"We have been a tight group from the start," he said.

"From day one, we have all been great together, and I think we are now reaping the benefits of that.

"We are all pulling in the same direction, all fighting for each other and, ultimately, that means we are now getting the results."

The 22-year-old, who recently scored against League One opposition at Adams Park in the FA Cup, has had his spirits lifted by recent form, which is all down to the freedom Flynn grants him.

"It's always good when the gaffer has confidence in you - and I feel like he does," Hutchinson said.

"It allows me to go out there, express myself and be more creative, and I am doing that."

Hutchinson joined the club in the summer and has now found the back of the net on two occasions for the Saddlers, and after the team's resurgence in form, he is confident there should be more to come.

"I'm trying to get in the box more," he explained.

"Play higher up and gamble on things, and luckily, at the moment, it has paid off a couple of times, and hopefully, I can do it even more."

After hearing the crowd's roar last Saturday, as his brave surge into the box saw the midfielder wheeling away in celebration, Hutchinson is itching for more.

"(The fans) were amazing with the noise they made for the whole game. They were the only ones we could hear from the pitch, and it was the first time I've been able to celebrate in front of them (the away fans) as well, which was a great feeling."
