As his team enjoys a rare international break, Walsall Interim Head Coach Jon Whitney has spoken to the local press, and discussed several things including his belief that despite teams like Wigan Athletic having more financial clout, the Saddlers' philosophy will come out on top.
As his team enjoys a rare international break, Walsall Interim Head Coach Jon Whitney has spoken to the local press, and discussed several things including his belief that despite teams like Wigan Athletic having more financial clout, the Saddlers' philosophy will come out on top.

Speaking via the Express & Star, Jon said; "Wigan keep reinforcing. They keep adding to the squad and you think ‘they must have a great squad’ then they added to it again. It’s a fine balance for them. For us, it’s about being tight-knit and the momentum we have built as a group.

“I think they are trying to add quality and rather than wait for them to settle in they are hoping that bit of quality will get them through a game – then they can change it again. Deep down, I think our way will come out on top.

“I think Burton will be there or thereabouts at the end of the season. People keep asking why they have done so well but they are drilled and they do things right – they stick to their core principles.

“They have a great work ethic similar to ourselves. Then you look at the teams below us. Millwall are a good team. Gillingham are a good team. Barnsley have been on a really good run of form.

“But all we can do is focus on ourselves, enjoy the run-in and do our best to make sure we come out of it with something positive. We are joint second with Wigan who have a budget that is 20 times bigger than ours. But that doesn’t mean anything because if you have got a passion and desire that can take you a long way – just look at Leicester and what they are doing in the Premier League.”
