Adam Chambers Keen to Avoid Another Relegation Battle

Walsall captain Adam Chambers has spoken to club journalists ahead of Saturday's season-ending clash with Fleetwood Town and admitted that he is not happy with how the Saddlers' 2017/18 campaign has panned out insisting that they have to ensure it is not repeated next season.
37-year-old Chambers, whio has made forty-seven appearances so far this season, admitted that it seems a little strange to be celebrating securing safety as he would like to be challenging at the other end of the table.

Adam, who was speaking via the club's official website, said; "Personally, I’m not happy with the season we’ve had. It seems a little bit wrong to be celebrating staying up as you want to be fighting at the other end of the table. With the situation we found ourselves in, the target over the last few games was to be safe and we managed to achieve that.

"We need to look forward to next season now and make sure we’re not in the same situation next year. I don’t know what the gaffer has got planned but you imagine there’ll be changes as we’ve been very inconsistent. We need to make a few changes and look to be pushing at the other end of the table."

Sandwell-born Chambers then went on to look back at the midweek draw with Bradford City and admitted that he was relieved that the result saw the Saddlers secure a place in the third tier for at least another season, he continued; "We knew we needed a point before the game and we would have taken a 0-0. It was probably a little bit more eventful than we would have liked, but we got the result we needed. We did well in the first half, played some good stuff on a difficult pitch and created some good chances.

"The equaliser just before half-time knocked our confidence a little bit and they came out at the start of the second half really well. They had a couple of chances and it was just about seeing out the pressure."
