Walsall's Jon Whitney has spoken to BBC WM following Tuesday evening's Sky Bet League 1 victory over near-rivals Shrewsbury Town, and has praised his side as they kept their hopes of achieving automatic promotion alive.

Speaking to BBC WM's Mike Taylor, Jon said; "We're very disappointed that a lot's been said in the press. I've heard from some sources that we haven't got a cat in hell's chance in the play-offs.

"But that fuels me. It makes me slightly angry, but that's good, as it gives us the hunger to prove people wrong. I've been through a lot. I dug graves for two and a half years. This is a doddle compared to digging clay graves at six o'clock in the morning.

"Win or lose, I always find life exciting. I always try to find positives. Some people still don't get me. They still try to pick at me. They keep trying to find chinks in the armour but they won't find one. This is something I'm revelling in and I'm not going to waste it.

"They (Burton Albion) control it for Saturday," said Whitney. "But we've put a bit of pressure on them. Their week would have been a lot easier if we'd got beat.

"It's a real tough game for them on Saturday. Gillingham are a really good side. Bradley Dack's a very special player, and they have Cody McDonald up front. They have goals in their team. But let's keep upsetting them. Let's keep it going as long as we can.

"These players have got guts. I believe in them. They've showed why they're in the position they're in. Credit to the club and the fans for not losing that belief."
