Audio: Keates Hails 'Outstanding' Saddlers as They Secure Much-Needed Win

Listen as Walsall manager Dean Keates speaks to BBC WM Sport and reacts to the Saddlers' well-earned victory over Bradford City.
The match, which saw the Saddlers secure their first win in six league games, was a hard-fought affair with both teams doing all they could to get the win as the opportunities to move either away from or out of the dropzone continue to shorten.

Dean Keates' side secured the win thanks to a Josh Gordon brace and a Joe Edwards header as they stretched the gap to the bottom four to 4 points, giving them plenty to build upon heading into next weekend's clash with Burton Albion.

The manager, who had been under increasing pressure over recent weeks, praised his side for their superb showing as they bounced back from going a man down just six minutes into the match to enter one of the performances of the season, securing three welcome points.
