Whitney Keen to Extend Walsall's Unbeaten Run as He Plots Rochdale Revenge

Walsall manager Jon Whitney has spoken to club journalists ahead of this afternoon's Sky Bet League One clash with Rochdale, and has insisted that his side learned some valuable lessons from their four-nil defeat at Spotland earlier in the season.

Speaking via Saddlers.co.uk, Jon said; "The last game still hurts a little bit and I want the players to remember how we felt afterwards. Rochdale are high tempo and they mix it up really well. But we can do that as well and we have learnt from that game.

"I have learnt as well and I think we are in a much better position going into this one. We are looking solid, we are difficult to break down and we are creating good chances. We know if we do the basics right we are a real threat.

"And we are determined to come away from this game having extended our unbeaten run to four matches. I’d say that would be a really good start to the new year."
