SMITH REFLECTS

18 January 2014

Saddlers' boss on draw with Bees...

SADDLERS' boss, Dean Smith, has reflected upon our 1-1 home draw with in-form Brentford.

"We were terrific today," he said. "It was a really good performance; we created chances, were good on the ball and were defensively strong.

"It was a great advert for League One football.

"We've always felt that we are more than a match for anyone at this level and we will take a lot of belief from this display.

"Richard O'Donnell wasn't overly worked and that's credit to our defence. Both teams went for it with attacking line-ups and, as I say, it was an entertaining game.

"I was pleased with the reaction of the players to going a goal down. They responded in the right way and our goal was well-worked.

"We were the better side in the second half against a side who went into the game on a fantastic run."

James Chambers was taken off as a precaution with a tight hamstring, whilst Andy Taylor jarred his knee.
