Walsall manager Jon Whitney has spoken to club journalists ahead of Saturday's pre-season clash with Luton Town, and has discussed his desire to treat the match as a dress rehearsal for the upcoming campaign, insisting that he and his squad will be ready for the opening game of the season.

Speaking via Saddlers.co.uk, Jon said; "We’re going to have a pre-match meal, travel down on the bus and treat it as if it’s out first game of the season. So Saturday for me is as if we’re playing for points.

"It will be a game where we can just iron out all the little creases and we get things ready for Wimbledon. I’ll pick a team that I think won’t be too far off who will start the first game of the season.

"It’s been a slow burning process and we’ll make sure we get the players to Wimbledon in just the right condition. We’ve had no injuries so far which is another great thing for pre-season.

"It’ll be an interesting one for me because there are a few problems that have been given to me by my players but they’re good problems to have. I’ll have to upset a couple of players but hopefully they’ll all be ready if called upon."
