O'Connor Unimpressed as He's Named 'Top Boss' Following Posh Triumph

7:00 am Monday, 29 April 2019
Interim Walsall manager Martin O'Connor was less than impressed as the widely available 'Football League Paper' had named him as 'Top Boss' for their Sky Bet League One 'Team of the Day' following Saturday afternoon's surprise victory over Peterborough United.
O'Connor, who had seen his side finally return to winning ways as goals from Andy Cook, Daniel Lafferty (OG), and Josh Gordon secured three welcome points against Darren Ferguson's Peterborough, is joined by Andy Cook and Scott Laird in the league's best line-up following the Saddlers' first win in nine outings.

The gaffer, who had already admitted to having mixed feelings following the welcome win against the Posh, accused the FLP of being 'easily pleased' as he secured his first win since replacing Dean Keates in the dugout at the start of April.

The victory over Peterborough sees the Saddlers take their battle to remain in League One to next weekend's season-ending clash with Shrewsbury Town. The match, which is to take place at the Shrews' Montgomery Waters Meadow is sure to be an eventful affair as the already-save Salop side look to commit their near-rivals to at least one season in the fourth tier.
