Sadler: Players Giving the Fans a Team to Believe in

Walsall boss Mat Sadler spoke to the media shortly after full-time.
Walsall boss Mat Sadler was once again full of pride as his team made it four wins in as many games with a 2-1 victory over Accrington Stanley at the Poundland Bescot Stadium on Tuesday evening

Falling behind to former Saddler Jack Nolan's early second-half penalty, the Saddlers were able to rebound with goals from David Okagbue and Emmanuel Adegboyega seeing the Reds continue their remarkable run.

Despite falling behind, the Saddlers were the dominant force in the first forty-vie and would have been more than deserving of a healthy lead at the break, something Sadler was pleased to see.

Speaking to the assembled media, including George Bennett of the Express & Star, Sadler said; "We dominated the game from minute one.

"I was really impressed with how physical we were and I keep wanting to get across to the lads that I want to beat teams in different ways.

"Today we did it from set pieces but I thought we physically dominated the game and we had a good shape about us when we needed to against an Accrington team that I know can play some fantastic football.

"Unfortunately, we didn't go in two or three nil up which is what I thought we should've done. But the lads weren't to be deterred on the night.

"To go 1-0 down, I thought the energy in the stadium was incredible to push us over the line and suck the ball over the line in the end.

"I've said from day one that to have nights like tonight is what it's all been about for me.

"Wanting to have that connection with the supporters and the team. It's been a while since that's been the case at the football club.

"We want to keep channelling that and give the supporters a team that they can believe in and players that they keep believing in.

"I think we're starting to do that. So long may it continue."
