Kinsella: "Confidence is still there"

16 March 2023

Walsall midfielder Liam Kinsella insists the players haven’t lost their confidence and are determined to go on a winning run.

The Saddlers added a point to their tally against Swindon Town on Tuesday night, their ninth draw of 2023.

Kinsella feels the team have a good platform to build on given they have kept an impressive 14 clean sheets so far this season and insists the players still maintain belief.

“The confidence is still there,” he said.

“We’re a hard team to beat and the run we’ve been on has mostly been draws. If we change a few of those draws into wins then we’d be higher up in the table.

"We’ve put in solid performances but we need to turn those draws into wins.

“We’ve been solid all season, the defence have been outstanding and it helps you if you get that one chance, you can try and take it and win the game.

“If we can keep it solid at the back in the remaining games and it starts to turn for us, I don’t see why we can’t get as many wins as we can.”

The Saddlers put last Saturday's disappointing performance at Stevenage behind them with an improved display against the Robins and the 27-year-old was pleased to see the team react in the right way.

“We had to respond from Saturday,” Kinsella insisted.

“I thought right from the start we were in their faces, high up the pitch, winning the ball back but unfortunately, not creating as many chances as we probably wanted to.

"We had a few clear cut chances but that’s the way it’s going at the moment, not going in the back of the net but we’ve got to keep the belief, keep the performances there and it will turn.”
