Audio: Dean Keates Looks Ahead to Saturday's Tussle With the Tykes

Listen as Walsall manager Dean Keates speaks to BBC WM Sport and looks ahead to Saturday's Sky Bet League One clash with Barnsley.
The manager, who has guided his side to an unbeaten opening to the league season, admitted that the match - which sees two of the league's in-form sides go head-to-head - will be a tough test, but is pleased with how his team have started the campaign.

Keates, who made several changes for the midweek Checkatrade Trophy victory over Burton Albion, is expected to revert back to a more experienced side but has backed his side's young guns to continue to push their older colleagues.

The manager is keen for his side to continue to express themselves both on and off the pitch as many have been given a unique platform to perform, something which they may not have been afforded at their previous clubs.
