Craig Westcarr desperate to face former club Notts County
CRAIG Westcarr is desperate to be handed a place in Walsall's starting line-up against his former club Notts County on Saturday.
The striker has been used from the subs bench in recent weeks, after signing a contract until the end of the season at the Bescot Stadium.
"I'm looking forward to it," said Westcarr.
"Hopefully I will be starting and playing, but if not I will be involved.
"It's kind of a new-look County side, most players from my time there have gone.
"I know quite a few of their players but I only really played with Bish (Neal Bishop), Judgey (Alan Judge), Jeff Hughes and Kristian Pearce, a lot has changed there in quite a short space of time.
"It's a good time to play Notts too.
"They've obviously sacked the manager and with the uncertainty about who the new manager's going to be, it's probably a good time to play them.
"Obviously it's always good to play against your old team and Notts will be no different.
"I'll have a few people going to the game and I'm just hoping we can get a result.
"Walsall's aim at the start of the season was to stay in the league, I think, but now we're looking forward and thinking 'lets give it a go' and quietly going about our business.
"We're just looking forward to the next 15 or 16 games and seeing what it brings."
