Walsall manager Jon Whitney has spoken to club journalists ahead of Saturday's League One clash with Bradford City, and has discussed his desire called upon his players to give their all as they look to get their season back on track against the visiting Bantams.

Speaking via Saddlers.co.uk Jon said; "We are going to try hard over the next couple of months to give the fans what they deserve. I’ve got to try and encourage them not to shy away from this challenge now, and rise to it. Enjoy being a footballer and enjoy playing for Walsall Football Club, starting this weekend. We can build on something.

"I’m excited about this challenge. I’ve overcome a lot of challenges in my life and in the grand scheme of things they may not be that important, but I’ll enjoy the challenge that this is."


Looking ahead to the game, which will see the Saddlers come up against former loanee Jordy Hiwula, Jon said; "He’ll be coming back to the Banks’s, but we've got to make sure it’s not a nice day for them, and I’ll be picking a team to try and upset the form book. They’re a very good team – Stuart has got them playing some really attractive football, especially at home.

"They’re not scoring that many though at the moment, so we need to find ways of trying to make sure that happens by nullifying their threat but being attacking. We also need to make sure we’re solid at the back, that’s the most important thing for me now."
