Walsall's on-loan Celtic defender Eoghan O'Connell has spoken to soon-to-be departing club Media Officer Dale Moon and discussed his belief that his time at the Banks's Stadium is helping him develop as a player.

Eoghan, who was appearing alongside Amadou Bakayoko on this week's edition of Saddlers TV, said; "Celtic are very dominant in the games in Scotland so it’s all about what you do with the ball. Here I think I have to work on the defensive side of the game and how to deal with pressure.

"Games in League One are very even. Even the games we have won have been quiet tight. There have been points when they could go either way. The Millwall game for example, we had to fight to take a good point away from home. I think that is a very important aspect of the game and that is what I have to improve on.”

Eoghan, who has made a superb undefeated start to his Saddlers career, then went on to discuss how he has settled into life at the club, he said; “I think settling in as quickly as you can is the most difficult challenge when you go out on loan. Getting to know everyone and making yourself comfortable. You have to gain respect and trust from your team mates - that’s very important.

"But since day one I noticed everyone is brilliant and nice to be around. This is a great place to be and I am really enjoying it."
