Darrell Clarke Glad to See the Back of October as He Targets a Return to Form

Walsall manager Darrell Clarke has spoken ahead of this weekend's month-opening clash with Swindon Town and admitted he's happy to see the back of the month of October.
After opening the month with an EFL Trophy - Southern Group D victory over Southampton Under-21s, the Saddlers failed to secure a single point during the tenth month of the calendar year and entered several dismal displays.

Defeats to Salford City, Leyton Orient, Cheltenham Town, Oldham Athletic, and Mansfield Town and have seen the Reds remain in the battle to beat the drop Clarke admits that there's no magic wand but he will keep working with the team to help them improve.

Speaking via the Express & Star, Darrell said; "You can’t put your head in the sand, we’ve had an absolutely disastrous October. Very promising September but October has been absolutely disastrous, glad to see the back of it.

"We have to rebuild, re-group. We've lost a lot of our fans at the minute, understandable. There’s no Houdini out there, no magic wand.

"We have players out there that are a little bit inexperienced and one or two of the experienced boys are feeling the pressure at the moment.

"You have to keep working away until it swings, and it will swing. It feels very painful at the minute. You keep working with them, there’s no magic wand.

"Players go through bad runs of form, I had loads of bad form throughout my play. You have to get them into form. How you do that, a bit of psychology and work on the training pitch.

"But there’s no magic wand that’s going to get them scoring goals, just keep working on them."
