Michael Flynn focused on finishing the season on a high

5 April 2023

Saddlers Head Coach Michael Flynn believes his side have the chance this weekend to have a say on the promotion race and relegation battle in League Two but is focusing on his side picking up as many points as possible.

The Easter weekend is always a busy period in the Football League and with a trip to bottom of the table Rochdale on Good Friday followed by the visit of Carlisle United, who sit two points outside the automatic promotion spots, on Easter Monday, Flynn knows his side will play a key part at both ends of the table.

“They’re all tough games like I say and Easter weekend is a pivotal weekend whether you are at the top or the bottom of the table,” began Flynn.

“We have got a chance to have a say in the promotion race and the relegation race with the fixtures that we have got.

“I want to get as many points as we can. I want to finish on a positive and give the fans some optimism going into the new season.

“It is going to be tough (the Easter period). Rochdale had a good result at the weekend and they haven’t been out of any game that I can think of out off the last 20.

“They are going to be full of confidence and they are going to come at us. We have got to make sure that we are on it because if we aren’t, we will end up with no points.”

The Head Coach provided a positive update on midfielder Brandon Comley who has been missing for the last two games against AFC Wimbledon and Gillingham with those in attendance at our opening training session on Tuesday being able to see him back in action.

“Brandon Comley was back in training today and he has been a big miss for us over the last two games.” Flynn continued.

“He is the calming influence in midfield, he covers a lot of ground and his positional sense out of possession is very good. He has been a big miss.

“We will have to wait and see on Donervon Daniels but that gives someone else the opportunity to come in and stake a claim.”
