Walsall manager Jon Whitney is pleased with his team's recent upturn in form, but insists they haven't turned a corner and there is much more work to do.
Walsall manager Jon Whitney has spoken to the press following Saturday's victory over AFC Wimbledon, which saw the Saddlers record back-to-back league victories for the first time this season, and praised his side for their recent upturn in form before insisting there is still much more work to do.

Jon, who was speaking via the Express & Star, said; "You cannot say we have turned a corner. What we have do now is work damn hard again. The last two wins, of course they are big. We have not registered back-to-back victories since March. We haven’t done it this season. But I think the last four performances are what I’m really pleased about.

"There are plenty of areas we can improve after Wimbledon. But if you have got a group of players who wear the shirt with pride, that put a shift in and who dig in when it’s needed you have chance.

"That gives you a chance to beat some of the big boys in this league which is what we have to do over the coming weeks. We are going to really push and make sure we stay hungry. That win moved us up to the 13th in League One. Our target now is to push on into the top half."
