Walsall manager Dean Smith has spoken to the press following Wednesday evening's Johnstone's Paint Trophy victory over fellow Sky Bet League One side Sheffield United, and has discussed his hope that the players go out and grab their chance to play at Wembley Stadium.

Speaking to the Express & Star, Smith said; “It’s whet the appetite of the supporters, the players and the whole club. It’s a great opportunity for everyone and that is what I said to the players, to go and take opportunities when they are there. It is there for us. We have just got to make sure our performance levels are right.

“I said to the players who went out there, players in the lower leagues very rarely get the chance to go and win cup competitions and this is one you can go and win. We have had two really tough games already in two in-form teams in Rochdale away and Sheffield United and we have managed to get to the Area semi-final.

“It is tough to get there but we are going to try and get there. Football is about momentum and getting a winning feeling. We have won three out of the last four and want that to continue. I’m not fed up about constantly reminded the club has never got to Wembley but it’s probably disconcerting we haven’t been there, there are some good teams left in that draw.”
