Joe Edwards Doesn't Want to Dwell on Defeat

Saddlers vice captain Joe Edwards has stressed the importance of not dwelling on defeat as he and his team prepare for Saturday's League One clash with Peterborough United.
Walsall vice captain Joe Edwards has spoken ahead of this afternoon's League One clash with Peterborough United, and has discussed how he has learned to deal with defeat, not allowing it to play on his mind.

Joe, who was speaking via the Express & Star, said; "The emotions now are very different to how they were before Bristol Rovers. But you don’t become a bad team overnight. You have got to keep yourself steady. As a young lad I would dwell on defeats longer than I do now.

"It’s not a matter of caring less. It’s just a matter of learning how to deal with the negatives of football. The young lads have been disappointed and it might affect them more. But it’s up to the likes of me, Adam Chambers and the older players to make sure everyone sticks together."
