Joe Edwards: "Our Only Job is to Win the Game"

Walsall midfielder Joe Edwards has spoken to club journalists ahead of Saturday evening's season-ending League One clash between the Saddlers and Shrewsbury Town and hailed the club's supporters for selling out their entire ticket allocation for the trip across the border.
Over 1,600 Saddlers supporters will be in attendance at the Shrews' Montgomery Waters Meadow as the Reds look to earn three points as they remain in the relegation zone, one point from safety, heading into the final game of the 2018/19 campaign.

Along with needing a win, the Saddlers also need a couple of other results to go their way if they are to avoid a drop into the fourth tier of English football and Edwards, who could make his twenty-first appearance of the season on Saturday afternoon, says the players are hugely grateful to have the fans’ backing.

Speaking via the club's official website, Joe said; "For them to do that after the season we’ve had is fantastic. We really appreciate that and that will give us an extra lift going into the game.

"The boys have spoken about it this week and it’s already given us a lift knowing it’s sold out and they’re going to be there behind us, backing us. If we can put on a performance and get a victory that will hopefully do the job for us, then we can send them home happy."

Edwards, who is among a host of players to b out of contract in the summer, although the club do hold a one-year option in their favour, insists the players must be positive in their approach – and make sure they give Saddlers supporters the performance they deserve.

Joe added; "Our only job is to win the game. We can’t go into it nervous or timid or looking to stay in the game. We know we’ve got to go out there and win the game, like we had to against Peterborough.

"If we win that, the rest is out of our hands and we’ll have to just wait and see. We’re going into it fully prepared, knowing we have to win the game and we have to put on a big performance to do so.

"I think we’d be even more gutted if we didn’t win the game, knowing if we had won we’d have stayed up. We go into that with a full focus of doing our job."
