Craig Westcarr today claimed finding a home at Walsall has led to his fine scoring form.
The 28-year-old striker is in some of the most prolific form of his career and is currently the Saddlers top scorer, having netted six times already this term.
Westcarr, who initially joined the club on loan from Chesterfield in January, has experienced something of a nomadic career since breaking into the professional game as a 16-year-old with Nottingham Forest.
“I felt settled from the moment I signed last season,” he said. “The first day I came in I felt settled and like I was wanted, that I had a big role to play.”
“Since I have been here everything has been brilliant, we have been on good runs of form, we have broken other team’s runs and done everything really.
“Since I’ve come in I have really enjoyed it and I think it shows in how I’m playing.”
Westcarr has a scoring ratio of a goal every three games since joining Dean Smith’s side and on current form is on target to break the 20-goal barrier this term.
But the hitman says team success means much more to him than personal achievements.
“I’m pleased but I want to do more and get more goals and win games,” he said.
“Getting the team to where we want to go, that is all I care about at the minute.”
The Saddlers are preparing for a trip to MK Dons on Saturday, aiming to continue excellent away form which has already produced four wins on the road in League One.
Westcarr, who believes the play-offs are a realistic goal for Dean Smith’s side, says team spirit will be key to sustaining a top six challenge.
He added: “You know there is always a good chance we are going to do something with the team spirit we have here.
“We want to keep proving everyone wrong. And from a personal point of view, I want to keep scoring.”
