Saddlers centre-back Jon Guthrie has spoken to the press and insisted that the victory over Fleetwood has given the team the confidence to go on an unbeaten run.
Walsall defender Jon Guthrie has spoken to the local press and insisted that he believes in the Saddlers' style of play, and thinks that the recent victory over Fleetwood Town has given the team the belief to go on a much-needed unbeaten run.

Jon, who was speaking via the Express & Star, said; "I think we needed that win over Fleetwood. We showed a lot of character in the game. We came back from 1-0 down. They pegged us back at 2-2. But we came back again and to do that I think shows what we are all about. It’s a win that has given us a lot of confidence. We are a confident bunch anyway. But getting the actual three points, moving forward is a big boost. Now we all want to put a run together to move up the table."

The 25-year-old who began his professional career with Crewe Alexandra, then went on to admit that the Emirates FA Cup - First Round defeat to Newport County was a huge wake-up call for the team, insisting that they have made positive changes to put things right, he continued; "We had a really long hard look at ourselves after the Newport game. We knew it wasn’t good enough. I think since then we have all been determined to work extra hard and put things right. We know we let ourselves down. Hopefully the way we have played since then shows we are trying to put things right.

"We’re trying to play a more possession-based game. If you look at the players we have in the side – we haven’t really got the personnel to whack it long. Some teams are suited to that way playing.

"But I think with the players we have got we are much more suited to getting it down and trying to play through the thirds. We have spoken about that as a group and we agree that’s the best way to move forward."
