JORDAN RHODES wants players and fans to form a united front as Town bid to end a disappointing run of results at Walsall tomorrow.
The goalless draw with Stockport County at the Galpharm on Saturday means Lee Clark’s side have taken only two points from the last nine available.
But they remain sixth in League I and eight-goal top scorer Rhodes pointed out: “We have a lot of young players, myself included, who are still learning, and we have to use games like this to gain valuable experience.”
The 19-year-old added: “Teams are coming to our place for draws and the last two (Brentford before Stockport) got what they wanted.
“When visiting sides flood the midfield, it’s hard for the strikers to find space and hard for our midfielders to find the strikers!
“I know it’s frustrating for our fans, but we’re working hard to find ways to beat sides who set up defensively.
“We created chances against Stockport, and had we got one goal, I think more would have followed.Related content
“Away from home games should be more open, and we’ll go to Walsall aiming to get the job done.”
The Midlands side, managed by Holme Valley-based Chris Hutchings, are 16th after losing 3-0 at Hartlepool.
