After seeing the Saddlers earn their second win in three league outings on Saturday afternoon, Walsall Head Coach Matthew Taylor praised Barnsley's George Miller after the on-loan attacked grabbed a brace of goals at the Banks's.

Miller, who arrived in WS1 on Transfer Deadline Day, scored two of the Saddlers' three goals as they took advantage of struggling Mansfield's defensive woes to secure a second home win in as many games.

Defender Ash Taylor grabbed the Saddlers' other goal as he powered a header home from Jack Earing's inviting corner during what was a fantastic afternoon in front of over 5,000 fans at the Banks's.

Speaking to the assembled media, Matthew said; "I'm pleased for George as what strikers need is confidence, and what strikers need is goals.
 
"He's got his goals because he's worked his socks off for 90 minutes. That's why we worked so tirelessly to bring him to the football club.
 
"He gives us a different dimension up front. He's strong and willing, and you see he can finish. His half-volley which hit the bar was outrageous – I couldn't quite believe it.
 
"George could have had more than two goals. He'll get better as well. If that's anything to go by, I'm excited to see him in a Walsall shirt again.
 
"George matches what we're looking for in terms of personality and character. The best thing I like is he's very aware of his situation – this has to work for him.
 
"It's a great position for us to be in with a player who's that hungry, and I think there's far more to come from him. He's enjoying his football and that's fantastic."
