Darrell Clarke Keen to Remain Focused as He Seeks Further Improvement

Walsall manager Darrell Clarke has spoken ahead of this weekend's League Two clash between the Saddlers and Salford City and insisted his side aren't getting carried away with their recent unbeaten run and remain focused on the task in hand.
The Saddlers have won four all-competition games in a row and Clarke admits he has been pleased by the turnaround in form but wants to see more from his players as they remain in the bottom half of the table heading into their opening league game of the month.

The Saddlers arrive at this weekend's clash on the back of a midweek EFL Trophy victory over Southampton Under-21s and is keen for his team to keep their feet firmly on the ground with plenty of must-win clashes still to come.

Speaking via the club's official website, Darrell said; "There's nobody getting carried away. The players know my feelings, they're well aware that I want better and I want more.

"Results have been good over the last couple weeks but we want better performances and better results as well.

"If you're asking me are we anywhere near the standard that I want to get this club at, which isn’t going to happen overnight, the answer is no."

The Mansfield-born boss went on to praise his flexible squad has they likes of James Clarke, Zak Jules, Gary Liddle, and Liam Kinsella are all capable of playing in multiple positions giving the gaffer plenty to think about on matchday.

Clarke, who is well known for his penchant for squad rotation, insisted his versatile players are in his thoughts as he prepares to pick his team for this weekend's League Two outing.

The manager continued; "They're all in my mindset. They're all training hard, next game, next project, it's what it's all about.

"Picking a team to the best of my ability to win the game and have options on the bench to change it if need be and that's the way I work."
