Walsall manager Jon Whitney has spoken to club journalists ahead of this weekend's League One clash with Bradford City and has sought to play down the game, insisting that the team will simply enjoy the experience of playing in front of the large crowd at Valley Parade.

Speaking via Saddlers.co.uk, Jon said; "We had a bad experience there last year – the 4-0 – and we don’t want another performance like that. We want to go there, give it a go and enjoy the experience of playing in front of 16-17,000.

"We’ve looked at them and what their strengths are and they are a strong team. They brought Alex Jones in - he scored a lot at Port Vale and scored a good goal on Sunday. Jordy came off the bench. They brought in Wyke from Carlisle and you can see how their form has dropped off since he left.

"Kevin Toner played Sunday too and they’re a good, strong team. They make you defend and overload in the final third. We’ve got to cope with it and then play our football."
