Sadler Proud as Determined Walsall Return to Winning Ways

Here is how the gaffer reacted following the Saddlers' meeting with Salford City.
Walsall boss Mat Sadler has praised his side for their fighting spirit as they returned to winning ways against Salford City on Easter Monday.

Playing in front of more than 6,000 supporters at the Poundland Bescot Stadium, the Saddlers opened the scoring within the opening ten minutes as Jamille Matt netted his fifth goal of the season.

Sadly for the Reds, their lead didn't last as Matty Lund went on to level the scores in the second-half before substitute Mo Faal netted the winner in stoppage time.

Sadler, who had seen his team thrashed by Milton Keynes Dons on Good Friday, admitted the match was far from a vintage performance, but was a great way to bounce back.

Speaking to Express & Star reporter George Bennett, Sadler said: "It wasn't vintage from us, it wasn't as clean as we'd like.

"We probably gave possession away a little bit too often and when you have the result we had the other day, I think we're all human, it probably plays a little bit into your mind.

"But the desire, determination and willingness to keep pushing forward and to respond and get that victory was incredible.

"We took a knockback by conceding and we kept on ploughing forward to try to get that win. Jamille had to come off at half-time and that was another knockback.

"We still kept going forward and I was delighted with that. We're getting to that time of the season where these late goals can be gold dust and mean a hell of a lot."
