Luke Leahy: Walsall Building a Winning Mentality

Walsall left-back Luke Leahy has spoken to the local press ahead of this weekend's League One clash with Scunthorpe United and discussed the Saddlers' opening day victory over Plymouth Argyle, which saw him net the winning goal via a superb free-kick, and revealed that Dean Keates' drive to build a winning mentality played a part in the side securing all three points.
Leahy, who was able to grab the winning goal after summer signing Andy Cook had levelled the scores on the stroke of half-time, admitted that last season the team would have crumbled under the pressure and may well have gone on to concede an equaliser.

Speaking via the Express & Star, Luke said; "I think last year we’d have conceded and ended up drawing the Plymouth game 2-2. It’s the mindset of everyone. We have a winning mentality, even in training there is stuff you have to do if you lose, there are punishments – you don’t want to lose.

"The gaffer has brought in a winning mentality and it showed against Plymouth – we put bodies on the line. Jon Guthrie had a bloody nose, Kieron went down injured. Everyone put everything they had into it. And that’s all he asks from us. To give everything. In training, the five and six-a-sides are really intense. The gaffer wants us to win at everything."
