Walsall Head Coach Matthew Taylor has spoken ahead of this weekend's League Two clash with Exeter City, and insisted he is looking forward to the challenge, admitting he hopes his side can cause an upset.

After losing their last two games, the Saddlers are looking to return to winning ways, and collect their first away league win of the season, as they look to climb away from the lower reaches of the table and get their season back on track.

Taylor, who has managed to secure just two wins from his nine league games in charge, admitted his team must be more ruthless in front of goal if they are to take anything from Matty Taylor's in-form Grecians.

Speaking via the club's official website, Matthew said; "You’ve got to earn the right to play because you’re going to their home ground, their home patch and every team in this division, up and down the country, defends that with their lives.
"Therefore, if you look at the form Exeter are in at home, it’s positive. It’s a great challenge and a great game for us to have because I would say the majority of people would expect us to go there and not come away with anything.
"I, on the other hand, think completely differently – as do the coaches and the players. We have to match their intensity, we have to match their desire and if we do that, we have good players, and we will 100 per cent create opportunities but we have to be more ruthless.
"We will hopefully have a period on Saturday when we’re on top – we’ve got to take our chances because we do know Exeter are a dangerous team and if we don’t take our chances then we always run the risk of if we have a slight lead or are drawing the game, of losing it.
"We’ve been through that in the last two games and I don’t want a reoccurrence of that, the players don’t want that and what we’ve got to do is make sure that doesn’t happen again.
"That doesn’t happen again through hard work and honest conversations at the training ground. That’s what we’ve done and that’s all we can do."
