SKIPPER LEADS THE WAY

18 October 2013

Butler determined for three points...

SADDLERS' skipper, Andy Butler, is ready to lead the side into battle on Saturday as we take on Stevenage.

"It will be a tough test as they come into the game on the back of consecutive home wins," he said. "Graham Westley is back at the helm and we will be giving them the respect that they deserve, but at the same time showing determination to get the three points.

"Once more it’s up to us to show what we can do and start on the front-foot. We know that if we keep doing the right things, the results will follow.

"Looking back at our last game, a point away from home is not to be sniffed at, and trailing with 95 minutes on the clock, we were very grateful for it, but there is no doubt that we were the better side for virtually the entire game.

"We played some really good football and created plenty of chances as well as hitting the woodwork a couple of times. To have come away with nothing would have been a travesty, but Andy Taylor stepped up and showed great technique to curl the ball home."

Meanwhile, Saddlers' physiotherapist, Jon Whitney, has been given a two-match touchline ban and fined £1000 after admitting to a charge of improper conduct.

The breach of FA Rule E3 occurred in our League One fixture at Leyton Orient on 28th September 2013.

The two-match touchline ban will begin with immediate effect.

Saturday's game will see us celebrating the excellent work that the Kick It Out Campaign has undertaken over the past 20 years.
