Walsall's veteran winger Paul Hall hopes he has done enough to keep his place in manager Richard Money's current line-up after starting his first back-to-back matches since September.
Hall, 35, put in two solid performances in the League One draw against Brighton and the FA Cup First Round win against Shrewsbury Town and he now hopes to build on that as a platform.
Hall, a Jamaican International who has played for ten clubs and had two previous spells at Walsall, hopes his recent form has done enough to persuade manager Richard Money to allow him to play his part in the Saddlers' next match on Saturday at the Banks's Stadium against Luton Town.
Hall said:" It is always nice to come into the team and win. It has been really good this last couple of weeks and am happy to have played my part. It has been a positive week or so for the team too with us getting a good win at Cheltenham followed up by that hard-earned point at Brighton and then crowned with that win over Shrewsbury Town in the cup."
Walsall, who will now play either Darlington or Northampton Town in the next round, are finally finding some consistency after a difficult start to the season.
"We are a team now that is hard to beat as our current run suggests and that is a big positive," said Hall. "When we go out and play games we have got to be hard to beat and hard to break down. That is exactly what we are at the moment and long may it continue."
The midfielder, who joined Walsall for his latest stint from Chesterfield earlier this year, added: "It is a good platform to work from and personally I just want to keep my place in the side.
"It will be tough because there is a lot of competition for places but that can only be a good thing for Walsall Football Club."
