O'CONNOR: "IT'S TOO EARLY TO CALL"

Walsall Football Club summer signing James O'Connor has spoken to the press ahead of this weekend's Sky Bet League 1 clash with Coventry City, and has insisted that whilst the Saddlers have a chance of gaining promotion to the Championship, we shouldn't concentrate on the table.
Walsall Football Club summer signing James O'Connor has spoken to the press ahead of this weekend's Sky Bet League 1 clash with Coventry City, and has insisted that whilst the Saddlers have a chance of gaining promotion to the Championship, we shouldn't concentrate on the table.

Speaking to BBC WM, James said; "It's pointless looking at the table. You have to focus on yourselves. Three wins and you're right up there, three losses and you're back down there. It's really that mad.

"Losing at home (to Swindon Town) in the manner we did was a massive shock. But then we go and put in the sort of performance we did at Milton Keynes, which was a great way to bounce back. And we got another two goals from my room-mate Tom Bradshaw.

"He had a tough time last year at Shrewsbury but he's come here well, worked hard, is liked by everyone and gets his rewards. He's a bit of a talisman for us. It's nice to have someone at the top end who can put the ball in the back of the net.

"On top of that, we kept our 10th clean sheet. That's a fantastic record at this stage of the season and it's a platform to build on. If we can carry on doing that over the second half of the season and Bradders can keep putting them in then I'm sure we can be successful.

"When I was at Doncaster and we got promoted we didn't have the best of starts. Around December, we weren't anywhere near the play-offs.

"But, if you can go and string three or four wins together, you're right up there and then anything can happen."
