Keates Keen to Focus on the Positives as Attention Turns to Peterborough

11:43 am Thursday, 20 December 2018  
Dean Keates has spoken to the press ahead of this weekend's League One clash with Peterborough United and insisted that he and his squad have now put last Saturday's disappointing defeat to Bradford City behind them and are fully focused on taking on the Posh.
Keates, who watched as his side suffered a four-nil drubbing at the hands of the struggling Bantams, reiterated his stance that the level of performance will not be tolerated before revealing that the he and his squad have spoken both individually and collectively and are keen to put the match behind them.

The Saddlers, who went in to the Bradford match following encouraging performances and results against Coventry City and Sunderland, have a chance to get their spell back on track as they visit Peterborough's London Road this weekend.

The Walsall-born boss, who was speaking via the Express & Star, said; "As I said, that kind of performance we won’t tolerate. We’ve looked back at Bradford – we’ve pulled that game apart more than any other game to get to the bottom of what happened.

"There’s not been a witch-hunt but players have to know when they make mistakes. We talked individually and collectively as a group and we went through it. But on the other side you can’t just push the negatives.

"As a whole, it was an okay week for us. Against Coventry we showed great character. We then went up to Sunderland and put on an all-round performance. We can’t let one bad half out of six affect everything.

"And if we win two out of three games for the rest of the season, I think everyone will finish the season happy."
