Walsall defender James O'Connor has spoken to the local press ahead of this evening's League One clash with Port Vale, and has insisted that he and his teammates want to take something from the game as they look to bounce back from Saturday's defeat to Coventry City.

Speaking via the Express & Star, James said; "Port Vale is about pride. It’s about personal pride and it’s about our pride as a team.

"Coventry was not acceptable. As a group of players they looked hungrier and they passed the ball better. It was really disappointing. You try and set standards as a team throughout the year but we didn’t meet them. We have got to be better than that. We know that.

"We let ourselves down and we let down the fans that travelled. We can accept a defeat if we keep our performance levels up, our intensity. But that wasn’t the case. As a group we all have to look at that."
