Michael Flynn discusses Crewe Alexandra trip

14 April 2023

Walsall Head Coach Michael Flynn is keen to send Saddlers fans home happy with what he admits would be a long overdue away victory.

The Saddlers make the short trip up the M6 to Crewe Alexandra tomorrow afternoon and will be keen to build on a solid draw with Carlisle United.

Flynn is hoping his side will bring their A-game in what he anticipates to be another tricky encounter against a Crewe side who have had some mixed results of late.

“Crewe are a team that can lose four-nil but can also win three or four-nil, which they’ve done recently as well,” Flynn said.

“It’s going to be a typical tough game and whoever turns up on the day, whether it’s Crewe or Walsall - hopefully it’s us, will come away with the points.

“If you were a betting man looking at the amount of draws we’ve both had then you would say it was a draw but we’re going there to win the game.

“There will be 800-1000 Walsall fans who will get behind us, support us and create an atmosphere there because it’s not always the best atmosphere at Crewe so our fans can hopefully get behind us and we can give them something to go home happy about tomorrow because it’s long overdue.”

Flynn was pleased with how his team competed last time out against Carlisle, particularly after having to battle with 10-men for half an hour and he is hoping the players can take confidence from that game.

“It was a lot better performance in terms of we went toe to toe with Carlisle who were third in the division,” he commented.

“Even though we don’t set our sights on that, we want to do better. We’ve improved the last couple of performances to the Wimbledon and the second half at Sutton.

“The players have given their all, there were a lot of positives and the one I was most happy with was how they stuck together with 10 men.”
