Walsall spoil Sturrocks sleep

Walsall spoil Sturrocks sleep

The Swindon manager has been speaking on the official web site about the up comming game, Sturrock also comments on his sleeping pattern stating:

'It's a thinking job so I find it difficult to switch off. However, I'd rather be having trouble sleeping than sleeping like a baby - because it mean's the season will have a meaningful end to it.'
The main comments are as follows.....

'I would say that we have now been shown by Chelsea and Manchester United that you cannot wait for things to happen; you have to take the initiative.

'Here we are with the last game of the season ahead of us and we are still chasing success. If the Play-Offs are the cherry ahead of us then we don't want it; we want the apple because a win this weekend then we are up.


'The important thing this weekend is that we get into the game quickly and remain positive. We are aiming to play at a high, high tempo and if we can do that then we will be able to get a result. It's a difficult game because of the situation that we are in, but the only result we can have in our minds is a victory.

DD on the other hand is quiet calm and assured safe in the knowlegde we are already promoted and the pressure is off, he told our official site..
'Swindon will come and attack us,' Money told the official Walsall website.

'Paul Sturrock has been in bullish and aggressive mood this week and I agree with him. You can be sure that we will be going there in a positive frame of mind looking to take the Title.

'The whole outcome is in our own hands, which is a great position to be in. We have been in the top two since September and that is a tremendous achievement. The players deserve all the credit they get and now we have the chance to finish the job off, whilst safe in the knowledge that whatever happens we will be playing League One football next season.'



'Walsall have been playing good football all season and we have to be wary when they have the ball. They are going for the title so will be going for a win too, so it should be one hell of the game this weekend. It should be end to end and a real game for the supporters to enjoy.


'Our season now comes down to this one game. I would hope that our entire squad will give it everything this weekend and you have a massive part to play, be sure of that.'
