Darrell Clarke Keen to Build Upon Walsall's Recent Run

Walsall manager Darrell Clarke has spoken ahead of Saturday's League Two clash between the Saddlers and Port Vale and called upon his team to continue their recent spell of form as they take on the Valiants this weekend.

Following a draw with Newport County and non-consecutive victories over Forest Green Rovers and Northampton Town, the Saddlers sit thirteenth in the table ahead of kick-off and could move into the top half by picking up maximum points this weekend.

Saturday’s dramatic victory over the Cobblers, which saw the Saddlers comeback from being two-nil down at half-time to take all three points, was Walsall’s fifth home league win of the season as Josh Gordon, Danny Guthrie and Rory Holden netted second-half goals.

Mansfield-born Clarke admits has been pleased with his team’s form over recent weeks and months but is looking for even more consistency as he doesn’t want his players to take it easy, even with the threat of relegation now a distant memory.

Darrell, who will be taking charge of his forty-fourth Saddlers game at the weekend, said; "My message to the players is to make sure they don’t come off it and build on the positive week that we’ve had.

"I’m quite pleased of where we’ve been in the last seventeen league games but I also want a lot more, a lot more from my players and better consistent results over a long period and that’s the question mark hanging over this group of players with twelve games to go because it changes mindsets of managers and coaching staff because if the last twelve games were to go well, players up for contracts want to finish on a high and we want to start that again this Saturday against Port Vale."
