Chris Dunn: Walsall Can Repeat Wrexham's Clean Sheet Feat

Summer signing Chris Dunn, who joined the club after his Wrexham contract came to an end on 30th June, has spoken to the local press and insisted that manager Dean Keates will have his side well-drilled in defensive solidity and fully expects the team to emulate the Dragons' ability to keep clean sheets.
30-year-old Dunn, who kept sixteen of Wrexham's record twenty-two clean sheets last season, believes that the gaffer is more than capable of transferring his defensive-minded approach to next season's League One campaign.

Speaking via the Express & Star, Dunn said; "Of course it can be repeated here. It was the way we set up at Wrexham that made us so strong defensively. We were solid, had a bit of experience and sometimes it just clicks. It’s momentum as well in football – you get a few clean sheets and they seem to follow one after another.

"Obviously Walsall is a step up and it’s a tough level – really competitive. It’ll be harder but it’ll be a good challenge for everyone. If we can start well, get a bit of momentum and go on a run things seem to become easier."

London-born Dunn then went on to praise his rival for a starting spot - Liam Roberts, admitting that he is enjoying working with the 23-year-old, he continued; "Liam came in last year, did well and made the number one his own. He’s a fairly young lad but he’s got a bright future ahead of him. We’ve worked together in training and we’re both working off each other. I think it’ll be good competition."
