Walsall right-back Joe Edwards has spoken to the local press ahead of this afternoon's season-opening clash with AFC Wimbledon, and has discussed his desire to get the campaign off to a strong start.

Speaking to Joseph Masi of the Express & Star, Joe said; "The first game is massive for everyone in the league. You want to put on a good show and impress the supporters and the sooner you can get three points on the board the better. We are going into it full of confidence. There is that little extra buzz. Pre-season is over, we are playing for points and we want to show what we can do.

"We are at home and the aim has to be to get the fans behind us and get that good start because it can set you on your way for the rest of the season. After last year, we know there is an expectancy to be competing for promotion. We now need to start proving we can go one better than last year."
