Walsall defender James O'Connor has spoken to club journalists following Tuesday evening's League One victory over Sheffield United, and has called upon his teammates to build on the result and kick-start their campaign.

Speaking via Saddlers.co.uk, James said; "It’s massively important we build on this result. We’ve got a break now with no game this weekend and had we gone into it on the back of a defeat, then it could have had a negative effect on the season.

"But we can use it the other way now. Hopefully we can clear up a few little niggles, freshen up, and really kick-start our season. You look back seven days at how low everyone was after Rochdale - you’re not going to simply kick a ball and play great football all of a sudden.

"It starts with hard work and application, and we showed that in abundance. The effort from the boys was absolutely different class. We were obviously under a lot more pressure than we would have liked, but we put our bodies on the line."
