Clarke Pleased With the Workout as Walsall Draw With Leamington

Walsall manager Darrell Clarke has spoken to the press following the Saddlers' midweek pre-season draw with Leamington, and praised his side for their work rate before going on to discuss the Brakes and manager Paul Holleran.
Clarke included four trialists in his side to play at the Phillips 66 Community Stadium, including experienced midfielder Danny Guthrie, former Birmingham City man Koby Arthur, and ex-Leicester City prospect Kairo Edwards-John - the latter of the trio getting on the scoresheet - and Clarke was pleased with the workout in what was a competitive encounter.

The Brakes opened the scoring in the second-half as high-scoring striker Colby Bishop slotted past Jack Rose in the Walsall goal. The home side were unable to hold onto their lead, however, as Edwards-John finished off a neat passing move to level the scores.

Speaking via the Express & Star, Darrell said; "It was a really good work out for us. I thought we showed a good work rate, good effort and we were on the front foot a lot of the time.

"We conceded from their first real opportunity, other than that they only really threatened from set-plays. But I knew they would be a threat there because me and Paul Holleran go back a long way.

"I remember bringing my Salisbury City team here and getting beat 2-0. But he gets his team organised so I knew it would be a good workout for us. But the players are giving me everything.

"I think the fans can see that, I think they understand where we are at as a group and a club now. We are working hard to get it back on the right track."
