Whitney Praise for 'Honest, Hard-Working' Makris

Walsall manager Jon Whitney has spoken to the local press and praised club-record signing Andreas Makris, who is yet to find the net in fourteen appearances for the Saddlers, as the Cypriot international continues to make his way in the English game.
Walsall manager Jon Whitney has spoken to the local press and praised club-record signing Andreas Makris, who is yet to find the net in fourteen appearances for the Saddlers, as the Cypriot international continues to make his way in the English game.

Speaking via the Express & Star, Jon said; "He’s hit the bar three times now and he won’t come any closer than he did at Swindon without scoring. But I said to him before the game, don’t worry about scoring a goal. The target wasn’t for him to score it was for him to occupy the two centre-halves.

"I think Conor Thomas controlled the game for Swindon when they beat Rochdale. But we set traps. And our press worked really well. But his energy was so impressive. I knew he would get around and stop them from having a passage of play.

"It would have been nice for him to get his goal. But he applies himself really well. And I think after his performance at Gillingham he deserved another start because of the work he put in. He is an honest, hard-working lad."
