Michael Flynn: Walsall must build on festive start

Walsall boss Michael Flynn says they have made a good start to the festive period - but hopes there is more to come from his side over the next few weeks,

The Saddlers made the perfect start with a 2-1 win at Swindon on Boxing Day but have two home games, starting with Stockport County tonight (Thursday).

They then host Mansfield Town before returning to Stockport in the FA Cup a week on Sunday,

The period of games is likely to shape the rest of the season for Walsall - with Flynn saying as pleased as he was with the Swindon win, it was vital the team take the form into the two home games.

He said: "We went to Swindon and got the three points which was obviously pleasing and the lads will have rested up after that ready for the busy period ahead of us,

"Particularly in front of the home fans, it is important to put on performances for them as well as pick up points as we have some momentum going and we don't want to lose that.

"Stockport are right behind us and Mansfield in the play off places already so they are going to be massive games in front of hopefully big crowds and that should inspire the players on if nothing else does."
