Walsall manager Jon Whitney has spoken to the press following Tuesday evening's unexpected night off, and has insisted that his side will be fully prepared for next weekend's clash with Oldham Athletic, which will be the first of four games in ten days.

Speaking via the Express & Star, Jon said; "Chesterfield was a great opportunity to give our fans a fifth straight home win. But we can do it Saturday. I felt really confident going into the Chesterfield game but that is all hearsay now. It’s given us time to work on our fitness levels and some tactical things. We’re now really looking forward to the weekend."

Following the referee's decision to call off the match, Jon and his team remained at Banks's Stadium and held a training session on the astroturf. Jon went on to discuss his preparations for next weekend's clash with Oldham, he said; “It was important our preparation for Oldham wasn’t affected. I wanted the lads to get their boots on still. We went out onto the Astroturf and we used the facilities we had to do some fitness work and prepare for the weekend.

"It gave us a chance to start working on Oldham straight away. There were some areas I wanted to see improvement in if the Chesterfield game had gone ahead. But we got work on them on the Astroturf instead. It didn’t affect our preparation at all. We still got the same meters covered. And now were planning for a tough game at the weekend."
