Brian Dutton Backs Rory Gaffney to Find Form

Walsall assistant manager Brian Dutton has spoken ahead of this weekend's League Two clash with Macclesfield Town and says the club ‘believe’ in Rory Gaffney’s ability as the on-loan Salford City striker fights to hit top form in a Saddlers shirt.
The Irishman, who joined the Saddlers on a season-long loan in late August, has struggled for goals since his arrival with his only goal coming in the 2-1 defeat to Swindon Town at the beginning of November.

After a spell out of the team the 30-year-old has gone on to start the Saddlers' cup clashes with Oxford United and Chelsea Under-21s, where he played for the full 90 minutes against the Premier League youngsters, being denied a goal when the referee adjudged the striker had fouled the defender as he bundled the ball home.

Dutton, who was handling the interviews in place of manager Darrell Clarke, says Rory's second-half performance in that game was much improved and the management at the club still believe he has what it takes.

Speaking via the Express and Star, Brian said; "With strikers, we keep saying it, it’s about catching them at the right time. We all know inside the camp of Rory Gaffney’s qualities and what he brings to the table.

"But unfortunately it’s a case that he hasn’t managed to get that momentum yet. You can see with strikers, once they get that purple patch and they get on a run, they look a totally different player. It’ll come for Rory Gaffney, we believe in his qualities and he’s a great lad."
