Reaction to another dramatic home win...

Players, staff and supporters took to social media to celebrate the Saddlers' dramatic 1-0 victory over Southend on Saturday.

Jordy Hiwula's 88th-minute header secured back-to-back wins for Walsall, who are now just three points off the automatic promotion places with a game in hand.

After the game, head coach Jon Whitney thanked the fans for their support...

Well played today 12th man... Due to your superb energy and enthusiasm I am starting you again on Tuesday...#believe
