Hutchinson confident Saddlers can build on draws ahead of Morecambe clash

6 February 2024

Walsall midfielder Isaac Hutchinson feels the team are in a good place and believes they can build on recent draws to move into a stronger position.

The 23-year-old scored his 12th of the campaign away at Gillingham on Saturday but the Saddlers were left frustrated as the hosts fought back to earn a point.

Walsall take on Morecambe this evening at the Poundland Bescot Stadium and Hutchinson is aiming to build on Saturday’s result.

“If we can go into Tuesday and get a win there and moving forward, if we can pick up a few more wins, then (the draws) can be a really good points and we’ll be in a really strong position,” Hutchinson said.

“We’re in a good place, I genuinely feel like we’re playing well.

“You get the odd game where it’s not a pretty game and we’re just on the wrong side of certain things but when it clicks, we’re going to be sweet.” 

Hutchinson has been in good form this season with 12 goals and five assists so far.

His last two strikes have come from the penalty spot and the midfielder has enjoyed shouldering the responsibility.   

“Until this season, it’s not something I’ve had the opportunity to do but it’s always something I’ve backed myself with,” he commented.

“You try not to get involved in what’s the keeper going to do, for me I just knew where I was going and that’s what I tried to do.

“I practice throughout the week; I’d never want to step up without having done that so you’ve got to prepare for these sorts of things.”
