Isaac Hutchinson and Michael Flynn discuss tonight's clash with Crewe Alexandra

21 February 2023

Walsall midfielder Isaac Hutchinson is aiming to make games in hand count and is confident the team will find their scoring touch.

The Saddlers have been on a frustrating run of draws and will be looking to get back to winning ways when they take on Crewe Alexandra this evening.

While he’s been disappointed with the draws, Hutchinson feels they will look more positive if backed up with a win this evening and he’s confident the squad will get back on track soon.

“It feels like at the moment that we’re drawing every game and it’s frustrating because we know we’re capable, we’ve got the players in there to kill teams off and to score plenty of goals, that’s never in doubt,” he said.  

“It’s just a case of it clicking at the moment. A month or two ago it was clicking and we had a little momentum going and now we’re struggling to find that. At some point it’s going to change and hopefully, it will be soon.

“A couple of wins will make these draws look really good, we’ll still be disappointed that they weren’t three points but they’ll just make them look better.

“The table at the moment is frustrating for us because we feel we’re better than what it shows but I think with a couple of wins, especially with our games in hand, once we’re level on games with everyone, we’re going to be in amongst it so we’ve got to keep positive and make sure that we get the results.”

Hutchinson netted his fourth goal of the campaign against Newport County on Saturday and he was pleased to get back on the scoresheet for the first time since November.

“It’s been a while since I’ve scored which I’ve been annoyed about,” the 22-year-old commented.

“When it came to the edge of the box I thought, I’m going to hit it and it went straight down the middle and it was powerful enough to go in so I was buzzing,”

Head Coach Michael Flynn has called for improvement from his team ahead of tonight’s encounter with the Railwaymen.

He is keen to back up recent draws with a victory this evening but is expecting Crewe to be a tough nut to crack.

“It does if we win but Crewe aren’t going to come here and rollover,” said Flynn.

“We’re going to have to work for it, we’re going to have to be on it and be a lot more clinical than we were on Saturday.

“We need to improve in a lot of areas and the final third is a key one.”
