Josh Gordon Hopes to Add More Goals as He Looks Ahead to Latics Clash

Walsall striker Josh Gordon has spoken ahead of this evening's League Two clash between Oldham Athletic and the Saddlers and called upon his teammates to put in a complete 90 minute performance.
The Reds arrive at this evening's clash on the back of three consecutive defeats and Gordon believes that the team need to use the quick turnaround from Saturday's defeat to Cheltenham Town to their advantage when they arrive at the Latics' Boundary Park.

Walsall's most recent poor run of form, four all-competition defeats on the bounce - came to an end with a victory against Morecambe and Gordon feels a similar performance against the Latics could have the same effect.

Speaking via the club's official website, Josh said; "We need to change what’s been going on and that’s what happened last time.

"It’s a Tuesday game, quick turnaround. It’s about starting again so hopefully we can get something out of the game.

"We’ve got to go there and score, nullify them. Whether that means scoring first or scoring in the 90th minute we’ve got to keep going for the whole 90 minutes."

Looking back to the weekend's defeat to Cheltenham, Gordon admitted that he was desperate to get among the goals and was relieved to open his account for the season as he slotted home from the penalty spot.

The Stoke-on-Trent-born 25-year-old continues to work hard on the club's Essington training ground and is now hoping to kick on and go on a scoring run.

Josh, a former Leicester City prospect, continued; "I practice them every day in training. I’ve been desperate to get a goal.

"I’ve been close, I’ve hit the post, had deflections and there was the one in the first half that trickled past the post.

"I just picked the ball up and did what I do in training and put it in the corner. The main thing is trying to get points on the board.

"You’ve just got to work hard for the team and if you score, you score. Hopefully I’ll get some more now."
