Wes McDonald: 'There is Still More to Come'

Walsall winger Wes McDonald has spoken ahead of this weekend's League Two clash between the Saddlers and Crawley Town and insisted there is more to come from him as he looks to build upon a strong opening six months with the club.
22-year-old McDonald, who recently penned a new 18-month contract after nearing the end of his initial short-term deal, is now looking to kick on in a Saddlers shirt, adding to the five goals he has already netted so far this season.

Wes, a former Birmingham City prospect who enjoyed loan spells with Nuneaton Town and Solihull Moors before enduring an injury-hit season with Yeovil Town, struggled to secure first-team football before joining the Saddlers on a free transfer last summer and is feeling right at home in WS1, insisting there is much more to come.

Speaking via the club's official website, Wes said; "This is my first full season in first team football. I’m happy with what I’ve done and I’ve shown everyone what I can do but there is still more to come from me.

"I’m still progressing, still learning and listening to the coaches. I just want to add to what I’ve done. I’ve got five goals; a few assists and I want to just continue doing that and get numbers on the board.

"I’m 22, I’m at a great club, I really enjoy playing and Walsall are getting the best out of me so I want to continue learning and delivering. It’s my first full season and I feel like I’ve come into my own.

"I still think there’s a lot more I can give and there’s still a lot more to come."

Wes, who netted his first professional goal against the Red Devils back in September, is keen to help the team return to winning ways after last weekend's defeat to Cheltenham Town.

The 22-year-old is expecting a fast-paced game and is keen to see the Saddlers secure the win as they have the opportunity to create a gap between them and their mid-table rivals.

Wes continued; "They’re only a place below us so it’s going to be a big game. We’re at home so we want to get the three points and crack on.

"We want to bounce back, we’re at home, the crowd will be behind us and we want to give the fans a good victory.

"I’m expecting a fast tempo game, they’ve got a few individuals that are very attack minded so I think they’re going to come here and bring it to us but we’ve got to show what we can do."
