Sadler Satisfied as the Saddlers Win Again

Walsall coach Mat Sadler spoke to the media following the Saddlers' League Two meeting with Rochdale.
Saddlers first-team coach Mat Sadler spoke to the media shortly after full-time, and offered praise as his side had earned a welcome win at home to Rochdale.

Heading into the match on the back of their midweek win over Harrogate Town, the Saddlers were able to enter another positive performance as they added to their visitor's woes.

Hayden White's opening goal of the season proved to be enough to secure the three points for his side, points that Sadler believes his side richly deserved.

Speaking to the assembled media, including the Express & Star, Mat said; "We knew today was going to be very tough.

"I think Rochdale’s position in the table is a false one for where they are now, especially now Jim - Rochdale manager Jim Bentley - has gone in. Jim is a very good and experienced manager who has got them organised and resilient with good players in good areas so I think they are a team that will climb the league.

"That meant that for us today we had to be strong and stand up to the challenge and then getting the first goal was always going to be important.

"It rounds off a decent week with the results and showing we can get points in different ways. Sutton last weekend was a different challenge all over again, it wasn’t one for fast free-flowing football and the ball had a headache in that game!

"We didn’t buckle or bend and showed what a together group we are in getting a point and that stood us in good stead for the two home games which followed.

"The only disappointment for me was conceding that goal on Tuesday – that was avoidable and it agitated the group and frustrated the group.

"But for large parts of the last one-hundred and eighty minutes we have seen how hard-working and together we are, how we’ve become hard to beat and had different players popping up to notch goals as well."
