Josh Ginnelly: Walsall Thriving on Underdog Status

Walsall winger Josh Ginnelly has spoken ahead of this weekend's League One clash with title-chasing Sunderland, and discussed his belief that the current group of players are thriving off the underdog tag that they have been given this season.

Over the next few weeks the Saddlers face games against Sunderland, in both the league and cup, along with Portsmouth and Coventry City in the league, and Ginnelly insists there is no pressure on the players heading into any of the games, despite coming up against so-called stronger opposition.

Speaking via the club's official website - - Josh said; "We know we are going into the games as underdogs. But we like that. There is no pressure on us. We are going to go to into these games and give them our all.

"And we know if we play as a team, if we do the basics right we have a chance. People are going to write us off the rest of the season but it’s in these four walls that matters. We back each other. We know what we have got and what fire power we have got so we are going into every game looking forward to it."

Josh went on to talk about the squad’s fearless attitude, insisting that much of it is down to the belief which the manager has given them over the course of the campaign, he continued; "He is intense in terms of the demands he sets. He wants the highest standards from Monday to Friday and then when it comes to Saturday he wants us to go out and enjoy ourselves.

"A lot of managers actually put a lot of pressure on their players. But not our gaffer, our gaffer wants us to enjoy the games. He tells us we have worked hard all week, he gives us instructions in terms of what to do and he wants us to go out and express ourselves. It’s perfect for all the players."
