Jon Whitney - "Our Pride Has Been Dented But We Have a Chance to Put it Right"

Walsall manager Jon Whitney has spoken to the local press ahead of Saturday afternoon's League One clash with Peterborough United.
Saddlers manager Jon Whitney has spoken ahead of Saturday afternoon's League One clash with Peterborough United, and has insisted that he and his team have looked back at the midweek defeat to Rotherham United and are determined to right the wrongs as they take on the Posh.

Jon, who was speaking via the Express & Star, said; "We went through the Rotherham game together, as a group. We had an honest and frank discussion. We thought logically. And put things into perspective because it’s the first time this year we haven’t had a performance.

"For 30 minutes we didn’t perform. But we can’t have a knee-jerk reaction. In perspective it’s the only time this season we haven’t done what is expected for us. And it just shows if you come away from the basics and what we are about – you leave yourself open which is what happened.

"We have looked at the areas we can improve. We have had some honest and open reflection. And now we are using Rotherham as fuel to move forward. Our pride has been dented but now we have a chance to put it right against Peterborough."
