Walsall frontman Elijah Adebayo insists they must start grinding out results.

The squad has been left in a slump after five straight defeats has left the Saddlers 21st in League Two. Despite this, the team’s performance against Mansfield was much improved and Adebayo himself was praised for a battling display that earned him his second goal of the season.

And although the club is in a rut when it comes to results, Adebayo is adamant the tide will turn for Walsall.

“There’s always going to be confidence there (in the dressing room),” he said. “We haven’t had the best run of results lately, but no-one is getting too down about it because we know things can change quickly.

“We know we have to be better but the mood around the camp is still positive. We can go into any game and win. A win would do all of us a world of good.

“Nothing ever comes easy in this league, we know to get a win we’ll have to fight really hard.

“I’m sure once we get that win the weight will be lifted and we can go into the next game with that confidence when we won four on the bounce.

“We’re into the season now and we need to start getting the results that will make the fans happy.

“The performance (against Mansfield) was better but the result was still the same, we need to get that balance of a good performance and a result. It will make the fans a lot more happy, at the end of the day they want to see the team win. There was a stage where we couldn’t really score then we go and score three goals at Crawley and we knew it would come at some stage. We just have to be patient, but we want to get it sooner rather than later.”
