Danny Guthrie Keen to Build Momentum Following a String of Defeats

Walsall midfielder Danny Guthrie has spoken ahead of this afternoon's League Two clash with Forest Green Rovers and admitted the squad need to be ‘mentally strong’ if it is to bounce back from a run of three consecutive defeats.
32-year-old Guthrie, has made twenty-four appearances so far this season, admitted that the squad needs to build some momentum and return to the form which saw the team move away from the relegation zone earlier this season.

Danny, who played for the likes of Bolton Wanderers, Newcastle United, Reading and Blackburn Rovers before joining the Saddlers is also calling on fellow experienced players in the team to help the club's youngsters to get through the current spell of poor form.

Speaking via the Express & Star, Danny said; "We’ve lost a little bit of momentum. We got ourselves on a good run and got ourselves in a position where we were looking up the table wanting to catch people.

"We need to be strong mentally now. Now we need to get on the front foot and start games really well and give our fans something to get behind, we’re going to need them on Saturday.

"We’ve got really good experienced players and some really young players who are not experienced and these situations are tough.

"Especially at home when fans aren’t happy, that’s when the experienced players need to encourage them to be strong and show the young lads what we need to do."
