Walsall's on-loan Celtic defender Eoghan O'Connell has spoken to the local press ahead of this weekend's League One clash with AFC Wimbledon, and has praised teammates James O'Connor and Matt Preston before discussing how much he is enjoying his loan spell.

Speaking via the Express & Star, Eoghan, who has played every minute since arriving at Banks's Stadium during the January Transfer Window, first discussed the recent switch in formation which has coincided with an upturn in form, he said; "I think the formation suits me and the team. We’ve been good defensively which is very pleasing. We’ve had a good shape, been organised and even when we’ve conceded goals it’s not like we’ve been opened up."

Eoghan then went on to discuss his partnership with James O'Connor and Matt Preston, he said; "I think me, Matty and Jimmy are building a good understanding. We’ve played together now for the past eight games and we know what each other are going to do. I know where Jimmy and Matty are going to be which is really important.

"We are forming a good relationship and I think we have proved that in the games we have had together. I’m really enjoying it here and I settled in really quickly."

O’Connell, who featured in seven games for Celtic at the start of the season, then went on to talk about how well he has settled into the side, he said; "We’ve had a good run of results and I feel I’ve done all right performance-wise. It’s been good to have a run of games and there have been a couple of Tuesday night ones in there as well.

"My body is having to get used to a Saturday-Tuesday schedule but it’s just great to be playing games because that’s what I’m here to do. I’ve played every minute so far and if I can keep that run going I’ll be really happy."
