Comley urges Saddlers to stick together and take the positives

20 October 2022

Brandon Comley has urged the Saddlers to stick together ahead of Saturday's trip to Sutton United in their quest to bounce back from consecutive defeats.

Michael Flynn’s men suffered a disappointing home defeat to MK Dons in the Papa John's Trophy on Tuesday.  

The 26-year-old believes his side showed plenty of promising signs despite the loss and remains hopeful of a positive result at the VBS Community Stadium on Saturday. 

“We can take positives from this game, there were showings of good play,” he said. 

“If you look just at the league, we have only lost one in the last four, we were unlucky against Mansfield.  

“We have to band together, push forward as a team and get the job done at the weekend.” 

Sutton beat League One side Oxford United in midweek and tasted victory in their last league game, a 1-0 away victory against AFC Wimbledon. 

The U’s sit in 14th place in League Two, a single point and place above the Saddlers. 

Comley’s versatility was praised by Head Coach Flynn, after the midfielder impressed in the trophy when he was deployed in a somewhat unconventional back-three defensive position. 

The Montserrat international admitted he felt comfortable in the new role and revealed that it could prove to be beneficial to the team in the future. 

“I had a few tasters of it (playing centre-back) in pre-season, and Swindon at home,” he stated. 

“Whenever I’m put somewhere I want to give my best and hopefully I impressed (on Tuesday) as it was something I enjoyed doing. 

“I know the midfielders want the ball and (as a midfielder) I know the angles they might want to pick the ball up. 

“As a defender you can see everything as the game is played in front of you, so me dropping back could definitely benefit the team.”
