Captain Chambers delighted to be back in action...
IT WAS the fourth clean sheet of the season for Dean Smith’s men at Gillingham on Saturday and captain, Adam Chambers, says his team-mates looked like their familiar selves against The Gills.
“That was more like us,” he said. "To come away from home, put in a solid performance and limit them to very few chances is pleasing and on another day we could have taken all three points."
Walsall 'keeper, Richard O’Donnell, remained relatively untroubled all afternoon and along with a resilient back four, helped record a fourth clean sheet of the campaign.
“It's what we’ve been about over the past few years,” added Chambers. “Being solid at the back and building from there.
“It’s even more pleasing after Tuesday, coming here and looking strong throughout the game.
“I think we had a couple of good chances and if one of those go in then I think we go on to win the game.
“We just need to make sure we’re in games and when we win the ball back we have players who can create things and do the damage down the other end.”
Looking ahead to the visit of Doncaster Rovers, the 33-year-old admitted his relief at seeing some injured players back in contention.
“A couple of the injured lads are hopefully back in training this week which will help with competition for places so we go into the Doncaster game with some more confidence,” he commented. “We’ve had our fair share of absentees so it will be good to get a settled team out there because it does help when you’re playing alongside the same players week-in-week-out.
“We know need to start picking up points at home to push us up the table. Obviously the last home game we put in a brilliant performance against Preston.
“We looked solid, created chances and was threatening going forward so that’s what we have to do again on Saturday.”
