Aramide Oteh Believes the Saddlers Can Still Secure Safety

Walsall's on-loan Queens Park Rangers striker Aramide Oteh has spoken ahead of Easter Monday's League One clash between the Saddlers and Wycombe Wanderers and admitted that the clash is win or bust for his temporary team.
Oteh, who has found his playing time limited since arriving at the Banks's Stadium, believes that the Saddlers simply have to win the match if they are to stand any chance of remaining in League One for at least another season, something he still believes they are capable of.

Aramide, who was speaking via the Express & Star, said; "Wycombe is a massive game – we have to win, it’s as simple as that. We got a crucial point against Southend. Some will say it was lucky, others will say our persistence paid off. But we have now got to beat Wycombe.

"They have lost 10 of their last 12. The are battling to stay up as well. I believe we can still get out of this. But we have to perform and get three points."

London-born Oteh has made just three starts since joining the Saddlers on loan from QPR in January. But the 20-year-old, who bagged the Saddlers' late leveller against Southend United on Good Friday, is now targeting more games and goals after admitting he has been left a little frustrated by his lack of playing time.

Oteh continued; "It has been frustrating I won’t lie. When you are a footballer you want to play. But when the results don’t go well and you still don’t play, it’s even more frustrating.

"You just have to keep positive because a chance could come at any point. I have played a few times, but as a striker – whether you play the whole game or 10 minutes – you always want to score.

"Now I have got my first goal it’s a weight off my shoulders. It was in the 90th minute, I kept my composure. Hopefully I can now get a few more in the remaining games because that point against Southend, it could be a crucial point. We don’t know where it can take us."
