Stuart Sinclair: "Focus on the Short Term"

Stuart Sinclair: "Focus on the Short Term"

Walsall midfielder Stuart Sinclair has spoken ahead of this weekend's League Two clash between the Saddlers and Port Vale and insisted the players must resist the temptation to look too far ahead and focus on the here and now.
The Houghton Conquest-born 32-year-old has made twenty-five Saddlers appearances since joining the club from Bristol Rovers over the summer is determined to take things one game at a time, despite the team currently sitting just nine points off the Play-Off places.

Stuart, who also played under Darrell Clarke at both Salisbury and Bristol Rovers, has made over four-hundred career appearances and went on to admit that it is a pleasure to play for a club with the a 'huge history' like Walsall, and insisted he and his teammates look to create history of their own.

Speaking via the Express & Star, Stuart said; "There’s twelve games left and the aim is to win them all. For us as players our job is to focus on the short term so I want to push as hard as I can and get as much as I can out of the remaining games.

"In terms of me personally and for the team in terms of progression. This is a big club and a has a huge history so just on that point it’s a pleasure to play for.

"Obviously, you want to look forwards and we want to create our own history and the supporters and community are part of that. It’s trying to make sure we carry pushing in the same direction, I think that’s important.

"I think they can see that and I think they get frustrated but I don’t see a problem with that. I’d rather them get frustrated because that means they care, I get the same.

"After the nil-nil on against Newport I was in a funny mood because I didn’t feel like it was football and it’s frustrating. I think for us to progress forwards and be successful, I think that’s a minimum."
