Whitney Keen to Work on Defensive Solidity Ahead of Bantams Clash

Walsall manager Jon Whitney has spoken to the local press ahead of this weekend's League One clash with Bradford City, and has revealed that he and his team will be working hard on their defensive solidity, especially from set-pieces, as they look to avoid a repeat of their disappointing defeat to Southend United.

Speaking via the Express & Star, Jon said; "From Monday I want to really starting drilling the players to improve us for the rest of this season and for next year as well. I want to try and nip a few things in the bud. It’s no secret we are going to concentrate on set-pieces.

"I want to make sure we are more hungry to keep the ball out the net. I want us to start enjoying set-piece defending like I did when I played. It’s been difficult because haven’t had all the group together and it’s important we don’t get too down because in general play we are okay.

"But it’s those dead ball situations we have to do better with. At the end of the day it’s just a willingness to keep the ball out."
