Oteh believes collective spirit is key

15 August 2023

Walsall striker Aramide Oteh feels the team’s collective spirit is a key asset to take into tonight’s Sky Bet League Two encounter away at Wrexham.

The Saddlers will be looking to build on Saturday’s 2-1 triumph over Stockport County and open their account on the road.

1100 Saddlers fans will be heading to Wales to make up what will be a sell-out crowd at Stok Cae Ras.

There is plenty of excitement around the game but Oteh has stressed the team must continue to stick together and remain focused on their jobs.

“Going into the game against Wrexham, we have to focus on ourselves and do what we have been doing throughout pre-season and since I have come in,” he said.

“We are all fighting for each other, helping each other and guiding each other so as long as we do that, collectively we will be fine.”

Oteh scored his first goal of the season against the Hatters on Saturday and it turned out to be a crucial strike.

The 24-year-old is keen to continue building on his performances and is pleased to have opened his account so early in the season.

“As a striker you always want to get off the mark early doors in the season and open that account for goals,” Oteh commented.

“You want to settle in and open your account for the club and for it to be the winner, that’s even better.

“In the last game against Blackburn, I got an assist and this week a goal so I always look to build on my last performance and take it into the following game.

“I will be looking to continue to do that and I think with the group of players that we have as well, they all push you to do better as well.”
