Walsall manager Jon Whitney has spoken to the press following Saturday afternoon's League One victory over Bristol Rovers, and has praised on-loan Celtic defender Eoghan O'Connell, who marked his second appearance in a Saddlers shirt with a goal.

Speaking via Saddlers.co.uk, Jon said; "I thought Eoghan was outstanding. His technical side was really good. One of his biggest fortes is that he’s so comfortable on the ball. He doesn’t panic which is great because we are a team that want to retain the ball and I think we’ve struggled with that this season a little bit.

"He brings that, he brings a presence and he’s a winner. I think the players respect him already for what he is. He’s just one of those energisers and that goes through his family. He’s a great kid. But I didn’t know he could score goals like that. But I’ll take it – it’s a nice string to his bow.

"I think his dad was here watching as well. He’s got a good sporting tradition in his family – his uncle was the Lions captain and you can see he has a winning mentality which was key in us bringing him in."
