Flynn hoping to start busy month on a high

3 March 2023

Walsall Head Coach Michael Flynn is hoping to start what he expects to be a highly competitive month on a positive note.

The Saddlers have seven games to look forward to in March, starting with the visit of Barrow tomorrow afternoon.

Flynn insists every team will be fighting hard for precious points and is anticipating a difficult challenge from a strong Barrow side who have picked up seven points from their last three games.

“They’ve had some good results,” Flynn said.

“They’re a good team, they’ve got energy, they’ve got a mixture of experience and youth and they’ve got nouse with the likes of Sam Foley, Niall Canavan and George Ray so it’s going to be a tough game.

“Every game is going to be tough from now until the end of the season because even the teams at the bottom have got something to fight for. The pressure is on the ones at the top and near enough everyone in the league has got something to fight for so let’s make sure we come out on top tomorrow and move on to Tuesday.”

Flynn has had a rare free week with the players on the training pitch and has been pleased with how preparations have gone.

“It’s been good,” he commented.

“We’ve got a lot of work done on the training pitch but it was important that we got a lot into the legs of the likes of Conor (Wilkinson), Oisin McEntee, Liam Kinsella, Joe Riley and Matty Stevens.

“We’ve worked them hard this week and managed to get as much as we can into them without risking injury so hopefully it will hold them in good stead going forward.

“It gives us the chance to get some real work in their legs because for the next few weeks we’re Saturday-Tuesday and we’re going to need everyone until the end of the season. It was good, the boys worked hard, stuck together and they’ve bonded again so it was a positive week.”
