Flynn looking to recharge the batteries ahead of Salford trip

30 January 2023

Walsall Head Coach Michael Flynn is looking to recharge the batteries ahead of tomorrow’s trip to Salford City as attention turns back to Sky Bet League Two.

The Saddlers will be playing their first league match in 17 days and will be aiming to close in on the play-off places.

Flynn is hoping to start another unbeaten run and is preparing the team for the jam-packed schedule that lies ahead.

“We’ve got to rest up, recharge the batteries,” Flynn said.

“We’ve got a really tough schedule and I don’t want the season whimpering out, I want us to be there or thereabouts come May.

“If they do what they did (on Saturday) and stick together like they have all season then we’ll be there or thereabouts.

“We need a little luck with injuries as well, it’s not helped us at all this season.

“That’s the reason why we’ve brought Yann (Songo’o) in, he brings that experience for us and a steady head with Liam being out, Joe Riley, OK he's nearly back, (Joss) Labadie out, Jack Earing out – it’s a long list and hopefully we can just pick up and go on another run in the league.”

Manny Monthé, who was suspended and Liam Kinsella, who was injured, both missed Saturday’s game.

Flynn was disappointed that both players missed the chance to face the Premier League side but he did have some encouraging regarding a timeframe for Kinsella.

“I’m gutted for Liam and I was gutted for Emmanuel, who had to miss the game.

“Liam we thought was going to be out for 12 weeks but fortunately he’s not, we’re more looking at three to four so good sign.”
