Chambers on performance at O's...
HAVING moved into the heart of the back-line following Andy Butler’s early dismissal, James Chambers put in a superb display to help The Saddlers bring home a point from Leyton Orient.
“It was always going to be difficult coming here, but to go down to ten men early on made it even harder,” he admitted. “We had to chase the ball more and roll our sleeves up, but I thought that we handled it well and stayed in the game.
“When we’re in the game there’s always a chance that we will score with the players we’ve got here and so it proved.
“I’ve played at centre back before earlier in my career, so I had no qualms about going there and I really enjoyed it.
“The lads around me made it easier to slot in; it was important to make them work today and we did that.
“The sending off changed the course of the game, but our character shone through. We were disappointed with the goal that we conceded, but we kept our heads up and got our reward.
“There’s a lot of effort and preparation that goes on behind-the-scenes before each game. We know what we’re about and if we’re at it, we can be more than a match for anyone at this level.
“It shows the strength and spirit that we have here that players can step in and do an excellent job. It’s a team game and everyone plays their part here.”
