Liam Kinsella sat down for an exclusive interview in Saddlers Shout where he discussed his recent return from injury, the season so far and the competition in midfield. 

Here is a snippet of our chat with the 27-year-old.

Liam, thanks for joining us. It’s been a bit of a tough patch for the team but how do you go about having a really positive finish to the season in the remaining games?

“It’s been frustrating this period. We had the one in September as well where we went on a run of a few games without a win. It’s frustrating because we know the quality in the squad is there, it’s just about getting the consistency every game to get the win. Performances have been there, there’s some games that we’ve drawn that we probably should have won. It’s a frustrating period of time but all we can do is focus on the remaining games and put in a positive end to the season.”

You recently returned from a spell out injured. How are you feeling? Do you feel like you’re back to full fitness?

“It was frustrating because we were on a good run, we were doing well so getting an injury at Tranmere away was frustrating for me but there’s nothing you can do about it. I had six weeks off but the positive was that I didn’t have to have surgery on the ankle. It’s good to be back training with the lads and trying to get back to full fitness, get a run of games and try and put in some positive performances.”

You went pretty much your whole career without getting injured until last season where you suffered quite a bad one and then one this season. Dealing with injuries is quite new territory for you…

“I’d never been injured before so it was a weird environment to be in. It was a freak one at Newport away last season where I did my knee. I don’t know if it was something to do with the pitch but something blew during the game and that was my first proper injury. Thankfully, it wasn’t long term and the one I picked up in January wasn’t a long one but fingers crossed now I can stay injury free for many years ahead and stay fit.”

How have you found the team dynamic this year in terms of your own role in the squad?

“Growing up being one of the youngest in the team to now being probably one of the oldest has been good. We’ve got a good bunch of lads; we’ve got experienced pros that know exactly what it takes to win and some good young lads in the team that bring that freshness. It’s a good balance and a good environment to be involved in. We’ve got a manager who knows what the league is about and his staff know what it takes to win so it’s about putting it all together and trying to get that good run of games and get the wins again.”
