Pre-match: Comley raring to go in anticipation of Sutton test

26 January 2024

Walsall midfielder Brandon Comley is looking forward to getting back onto the pitch against Sutton United on Saturday after last week’s fixture was postponed.

The Saddlers will be taking on Sutton at the Poundland Bescot Stadium on Saturday with hopes of extending a strong home record.

Although Comley was disappointed not to play last week, he does believe some time off has allowed players to recharge ahead of a busy schedule.

“We have got some boys back that had little knocks and little niggles and with this push we are going to go and try for, where we really want to be, we are going to need bodies,” he said.

“There are going to be a lot of games coming up and they are going to come thick and fast, so we are definitely going to need a lot of players to be able to switch and take people in and out when needed.”

Ahead of Saturday’s game against Sutton, Comley and the team will be looking right the wrongs after the Saddlers fell to a heavy defeat against Sutton in the reverse fixture back in October.

“I didn’t play in that game but it’s definitely one that we can look back on and say we weren’t at our best,” he explained.

“At that time, we probably weren’t at our best in form so if we continue playing the way we have recently then we will most certainly get a better result.

“It’s relying on ourselves to keep pushing each other as a team and as individuals to keep striving and pushing ourselves in the right direction.”

With only two League Two defeats so far this season at the Poundland Bescot Stadium, Comley is confident heading into every game because of the influence of the home crowd.

“That’s our fortress and that’s the place we want to defend, and you know we should be getting mostly wins there,” he commented.

“The fans have been amazing, especially of recent as we’ve been giving them something to get them up of their feet about. They have definitely been the twelfth man and you know it’s our home and we are going to defend it and that’s something we want to continue.”
