SMITH PLEASED WITH SPIRIT

20 September 2014

Boss on our goalless draw at Gillingham...

SADDLERS’ boss, Dean Smith, was pleased to see his side get back on track with a point and a fourth clean sheet of the season at Gillingham.

“It was a decent performance,” he said. “Gillingham had their tails up and went into the game with a lot of confidence, but we looked solid throughout and I can’t remember Richard O’Donnell having too many saves to make.

“We created a few opportunities of our own and could have taken all three points, but the lads worked hard out there and dealt with things really well.

“I was scathing of the back five after Tuesday’s game; we knew it was just a one-off and they have proved what they can do today to give us a platform.

“It was pleasing to have Adam Chambers back in action today and it shows his commitment to getting back out there and involved in the action.

“The news is also encouraging with the other injured lads who I expect to be back in training next week; it will be good to have them back and involved again.

“Credit to the boys because they started the game really well and put in a shift. The last performance has been put to bed now and we move on.

“The biggest thing from today was to get a reaction and a performance and I felt we did that.”
