Dean Keates Expects Rochdale to Provide a Tough Test

Dean Keates Expects Rochdale to Provide a Tough Test

Walsall manager Dean Keates has spoken to club journalists ahead of this weekend's League One clash with Rochdale, and urged his players to be prepared for a Dale backlash as the side look to recover from a heavy midweek defeat to Barnsley.
Keith Hill's side have conceded four goals in each of their two home league games and will be looking to get back to winning ways after enduring a difficult start to the 2018/19 campaign.

Speaking via the club's official website - Saddlers.co.uk - Dean said; "They’ve been on the end of something the other night and it won’t have felt very nice for them. They’ll be looking for a reaction and it’ll be a difficult game for us. What happened the other night is gone and it’s a new game for them.

"We’re expecting a really tough game but we’ll get ourselves ready, go with a game plan and, all being well, we’ll leave at 5 o’clock and be happy."
