A CASE FOR THE DEFENCE

18 January 2013

Butler on a solid back-line...

SKIPPER, Andy Butler has stressed the importance of a solid back-line as The Saddlers look to extend our unbeaten start to 2013 against AFC Bournemouth on Saturday (kick-off 3.00pm).

“They say strikers win games and defences win Championships," he said with a smile. "If you get your back four or five organised then the rest can enjoy their football. 

“We’ve got a good squad here and people are vying for positions. If someone makes a mistake or the Gaffer wants a change then someone comes in and wants to prove themselves. 

“The lads who have come in have made it their own. Paul Downing for example has been brilliant since he’s come in alongside me. He’s waited for his turn and then grabbed it with both hands."
