Gary Liddle: "We All Need to Show a Bit More Composure"

Walsall midfielder Gary Liddle has spoken to the press ahead of this weekend's League Two clash with Grimsby Town and admitted that he believes doing less work could well be key to the Saddlers' strikers finally hitting the goal trail.
Darrell Clarke’s side have struggled to find the back of the net so far this season, scoring just twice in five League Two outings, and the experienced Liddle believes the forward line could be guilty of trying too hard as they look to break the recent run of bad results.

Recent signing Caolan Lavery bagged a brace during the recent Carabao Cup defeat to Crawley Town but the Saddlers have since failed score in any of their three most recent outings as they continue to struggle to find their feet following on fron last seasons relegation.

Speaking via the Express & Star, Gary said; "Our strikers do graft. To be fair they probably do more work than they should.

"You find strikers here, there and everywhere but sometimes it’s good for them to concentrate on being in the box and be in-between the posts to put the ball in the net. But they’ll learn, they’re all young.

"And it’s not just up to the strikers. We all need to show a bit more composure and to chip in. We get into good positions but we squander good opportunities. We’re finding it hard at the minute to score goals, we’re missing that composure.

"But we all need to chip in. Set-pieces for example, they are massive in this league. At the rate we’re going we’d finish the season with 18 goals which isn’t a great statistic and wouldn’t get us anywhere near where we want to be.

"It needs sorting drastically. We need to be better with that final pass or final shot – that is what isn’t working for us at the moment.

"Five points from five games isn’t acceptable for the quality of players we’ve got and we know that We need to do better and get more points on the board."
