Walsall manager Jon Whitney has spoken to the local press ahead of his side's New Year's Eve clash with Oxford United, and has praised summer signing Joe Edwards as the 26-year-old continues to perform in a variety of positions.

Speaking via the Express & Star, Jon said;  "You can rely on Joe – you know for a fact what you are going to get and that he will do a job for you. If the opposition have got a player who is a ball-carrier we can nullify that threat by playing Joe wide and protecting the full-back.

"But let’s not take anything away from him, he’s also a threat going forward. He arrives in the box really well and reads the game really well. He is a key component for us and he is a big voice.

"It’s important we keep our shape and Joe helps us do that. He is a leader. He has been a captain in the past, when he was at Yeovil, and he is a future captain. We have got quite a few future captains in the team."
