Wes McDonald Pleased as He Grabs First Professional Goal

Walsall winger Wes McDonald has spoken following Saturday's League Two victory over Crawley Town and admitted he was delighted to see his hard work pay off after he scored his first professional goal, helping the Saddlers to record a welcome win.
Darrell Clarke's side secured the points as goals from McDonald, James Clarke, and Elijah Adebayo were ultimately enough to confirm the Saddlers' third win in a row, easing some of the pressure which had built up over recent weeks.

The 22-year-old McDonald, who has struggled to secure much first-team football since turning professional in 2015, scored the Saddlers' third goal on the stroke of half-time at the People’s Pension Stadium, and the London-born man admitted he was pleased to see some of his hard work beginning to pay off.

Speaking via the club's official website, Wes said; "I’m very pleased. It’s been a long time coming but I’m happy and thankful to get it.

"I’ve been working hard on the training ground, working on my shooting, crossing and adding end product to my game."

London-born McDonald went on to reveal that Saddlers forwards have been receiving plenty of advice from assistant manager Marcus Stewart, and Wes believes that it he has started to benefit from the former Huddersfield Town, Ipswich Town, and Sunderland striker's tips.

He continued; "He’s given me plenty of advice. He’s done a lot of shooting drills with us and I feel a lot of credit needs to go to him. His career speaks for itself; he’s scored a lot of goals at the highest level."
