Dean Keates Given the Gift of Time as Bantams Clash is Postponed

1:39 pm Monday, 2 April 2018
Walsall manager Dean Keates has spoken to club journalists following the postponement of this afternoon's League One clash with Bradford City, and has sought to look for the positives in the situation.
Dean, who is yet to register a win as Saddlers manager, admitted that he'd have liked to get the game played but will be better prepared for next weekend's clash with bottom-of-the-table Bury as his side continue the fight for survival.

Keates, speaking via the club's official website - Saddlers.co.uk, said; "It is what it is and I don’t think it’s any major surprise. We’d have liked to have played obviously after the weekend and get some points on the board but it’s been determined by the weather.

"But to take the positives out of it, any little niggles in the squad are given the chance to wind down ahead of the game against Bury on Saturday. It might also work in our favour in that way because Bradford had an extra two days of recovery time on us, having played on Thursday.

"The lads will be back in training tomorrow. With the game being called off it gives myself and Ian Sharps the chance to watch opponents coming up. So the lads will have the day off now and training tomorrow instead of today."
