JACK WALTON PRE-HUDDERSFIELD

21 April 2022

The goalkeeper helped preview Friday night's trip to Huddersfield Town.

BEING BACK IN THE TEAM

"Obviously, on a personal note it's great to be back out there playing. I've not had much game-time in the last 12 months. 

"So to get out there and get a run of games, it's good for me personally but obviously, it's a difficult time in terms of the results."

DEALING WITH NOT PLAYING

"At the end of the day, we know, as goalkeepers that it's part and parcel of football. I'm in a position where only one person can play. 

"You can't be a utility goalkeeper and play in another position. 

"You're either in the team or you're not. And that's something that's happened throughout my career, where I'm in and then back out. It's the life of a 'keeper."

ON HIS FUTURE

"Every game is another opportunity for every player to show their qualities, me included. So I can hopefully show what I can do in the remaining games.

"I'm happy with my performances when I've had a chance this season. And in previous seasons, every time I've gone out there and I feel like I've given it my all and done well.

"I trust in my own ability, and all I'm focused on is the next four games. What happens in the summer will happen, but it's not something I've thought about."

THE NEXT FOUR GAMES

"It's about going out there and showing what we are all capable of. We believe in our ability, but it's not worked at all for us this season. 

"We know the situation we are in, we aren't happy about it, but we have to keep going and show a bit of pride.

"In front of the cameras too tomorrow, it's another opportunity to show something better, and to give the fans, and the club a performance."

ON HUDDERSFIELD

"I think it shows what happens when you get on a bit of a run, the confidence that brings. They're having a great season and we know it's going to be a difficult game tomorrow.

"But it's the Championship and we know that anyone can beat anyone. So it's an opportunity for us to show, against an in-form Huddersfield Town who we are, and what we are capable of."
