Walsall midfielder Ross Tierney is looking forward to the challenge of facing Notts County at Meadow Lane.
The Magpies currently sit sixth in the League Two table, but Tierney is confident he and his teammates will give their counterparts a difficult game.
“Yeah, we know that we go into every game for the win, and we know we have the quality to beat any team in this league,” he said.
“You look at the points we have dropped late on and it’s in and around teams that are at the top end of the league. We’ve gone into every game and come out of every game thinking that we have not been battered in every game.
“Obviously with Sutton it was probably the biggest defeat we had this season, but we knew we were well below average, and we just need to get back to where we were, such as against Gillingham.
“They came into that game with loads of confidence, and we put them to the sword which was good. We just need to be fully confident. it’s going to be a difficult game and a different game to what we faced on Tuesday, but we know we can adapt to that and hopefully get a good result.”
After a period out on the sidelines, Tierney is looking forward to pulling on the Saddlers shirt once again ahead of an important game on Saturday.
The midfielder has found it tough being sidelined by injury but is nonetheless hopeful for what the near future holds.
“Obviously it’s been frustrating. When I first came here, I struggled to get into the team and then I got in and struck up a good partnership with Freddie and started to get my confidence back before the Sheppey United game,” he commented.
“After the Sheppey game I was full of confidence with the goal and then my injury came which never helps. It was frustrating for two and a half weeks but luckily, we did not have too many games that I missed.
“Like you said I knew I needed a couple of games before the Sheppey game to get back into full rhythm like I was. The injury never helps but hopefully I can just kick on.”
