On Saturday afternoon Walsall Football Club played host to Coventry City in the latest Sky Bet League 1 fixture of the season. Following the match, which the Saddlers won by two-goals-to-one, manager Dean Smith spoke to the local press and praised his side for their fantastic display.

Speaking to Matt Maher of the Express & Star, a delighted Dean Smith said; “It was a very good performance. There are always mistakes which creep into a performance but it was our reaction today, to everything which happened, that really pleased me.

“Sometimes you have to hold your hands up, their goal was a wonderful strike but our reaction to it was pleasing because we just went and got back on the ball and passed it again.

“Singling players out, it is tough. Today I have put Romaine Sawyers in. I think John Fleck is one of the best players in this league and Romaine did a job for the team today to stop him playing.

“I think he can pick a pass all day long and Romaine went out to stop him playing, which takes a lot of discipline.

“The defence had to be at it because they have some really good players. I think Neil has made one save in the first half from Murphy but other than that we have kept it really quiet, apart from the goal. Defensively, I was really pleased with us.

“They changed their system at half-time to combat what Adam Chambers was doing. Anything in front of our defenders he just mops up and there were a lot of good performances out there.”
