Sky Blues midfielder Conor Thomas hopes to see City continue their great form at the Bescot Stadium...
Coventry City midfielder Conor Thomas believes the side's current form is better than at any other time during the 2013/14 League One season.
The City Academy graduate is in a race to be fit for the game against the Saddlers, having played every game so far this season.
His partnership with John Fleck in central midfield has been one of the highlights of the 2013/14 season and he has already made more appearances than he did last season.
Having seen the side record recent wins over Leyton Orient and Sheffield United, Thomas has lauded the team work ethic.
The 19-year old said: "I think you have to look at our recent form and say it is right up there. The games against Wolves and Leyton Orient probably showed us at our best.
"There are individual performances you can pull out of the games but it is really all about the team and how we are working for each other.
"It wouldn't work if someone was having an off-day so it shows how driven we all are to make sure we are putting in as much as effort as the person next to us.
"Since the Brentford game, we've had a good reaction and found another level. Sometimes you need games like that to stir another level out of you and I think we found it."
Walsall are currently 6th in the League One and if Coventry hadn't received a 10-point deduction at the start of the season, City would be in 4th position.
With the game at the Bescot Stadium poised for a gripping local derby, Thomas says the away support is a major motivation on the road.
He added: "We can't afford to get complacent at the moment. We have done well this month but you always need to strive to do more in the next match.
"Everyone wants success but at the same time, we have to remain realistic with our ambitions and take each game as it comes.
"They are in good form at the moment so we need to produce our best to get a result. We have sold out another away game so the fans backing will be crucial once again.
"It was brilliant at Wolves as it created a great atmosphere and the players responded really well to it. Hopefully, it same can happen again at Walsall."
