Luke Leahy: "We Need to Start Putting Things Right"

11:53 am Friday, 6 April 2018
Walsall left-back Luke Leahy has spoken ahead of this weekend's League One clash with Bury and admitted that the team's performances throughout the season haven't been good enough.
25-year-old Leahy, who has made forty-five first-team appearances since he joined the club on a free transfer from Falkirk last summer, admitted that the season has been a poor one but there is still time to pull it round and secure safety before the campaign comes to an end.

Luke, speaking via the Express & Star, said; "I don’t think we can put our position in the table down to the last couple of games. Throughout the season, we’d have a good result and then we would go on to have two or three defeats. We haven’t been able to find that level of consistency.

"Now we need to start putting things right and it begins against Bury. We have lost to them twice this season and we owe it to ourselves and the fans to beat them. It’s a must win. And it starts a run where we face three or four teams all around us in the table. We have to start playing to our potential. If we do that, we won’t have a problem."

Coventry-born Leahy then went on to insist that, despite the current poor spell, confidence remains high before calling upn Saddlers supporters to get behind the team as they face Bury on Saturday afternoon, he continued; "The lads still have their heads up and are confident. Training has been really good. It’s been intense and the standard has been high. But we need to take that into match days.

"Hopefully the fans will get right behind us against Bury. It’s a big game and we need all the support we can get. When our fans are on top they are like a 12th man. They suck that ball into the goal. Hopefully on Saturday they’ll come and watch us and help us get three points."
