Daniels: "We've got a good group here"

17 January 2023

Walsall captain Donervon Daniels was happy to extend his side’s unbeaten away run to seven games against Tranmere Rovers.

The 29-year-old felt a mixture of emotions following the 1-1 draw but was satisfied overall coming away from the game with a point.

“It was a typical hard-fought League Two performance,” he admitted.

“Obviously when you’re 1-0 ahead you want to see it through in the last ten minutes of the game.

“There was frustration from us because we felt like we could’ve applied our gameplan a lot better than we did.

“The wind was a bit of a challenge for us, they also made it a challenge for us, but I think we had to stick it out and be counted and I feel like we did that.

“It was frustrating to lose Manny (Monthe) and concede the free-kick and then the goal but overall, I think both teams will feel like a point was deserved.”

Daniels hailed the Saddlers’ character to see the game out with ten men, after Monthe was dismissed for a second yellow card in the 76th minute.

“We’ve got a good group here,” he commented.

“It’s a good feat for any group (seven away games unbeaten), no game is an easy game. Especially when you’re going to away crowds like this and up against competitive teams. 

“But we have a strong togetherness, and everyone supports each other. We’re in a good run of form and we just have to keep going.”

The Montserrat international was impressed with the away support and believes the fans can play a huge role in the club’s second half of the season play-off push.

“The fans kept driving us on,” he stated.

“We know what is at stake, we know there’s a prize at the end of this and we believe we can achieve it, we just need to keep picking up the points.

“We’re going to a home performance now where we will have our supporters to push us on.”
