Walsall manager Dean Smith has spoken to the club's official website ahead of this afternoon's Sky Bet League 1 clash with Scunthorpe United, and has called upon his team to leave last weeks JPT heroics on the back-burner and concentrate on getting back to winning ways in the league.

Speaking to Saddlers.co.uk, Smith said; "It's been quite a week as we responded to our 2-0 home set-back at the hands of Coventry City last weekend in the best possible way with a deserved victory at Preston North End on Wednesday evening in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy Northern Area Final first leg.

"The result gives us a fighting chance, but we have to put it on the back-burner for the time being as there is important League business for us to focus on, starting on Saturday with the visit of Scunthorpe United.

"They have a good squad of players at their disposal and their fortunes have started to improve under the guidance of Mark Robins and ‘Ned’ Kelly.

"As far as we are concerned, there is a need for us to start getting back into winning ways on home soil after two successive defeats, and we have worked hard over the past couple of days in preparation for this game.

"I must say that our supporters were absolutely outstanding at Deepdale on Wednesday. They made themselves heard throughout and the backing that they gave us was much appreciated by the players and I.

"Let’s have more of the same on Saturday. There is plenty for us to look forward to, and by working together we can achieve our objectives."
