Skipper believes we have come a long way...

Captain Adam Chambers feels the Saddlers have made good progress over the course of the season. 

Jon Whitney’s men are currently 11th in League One, with 53 points from 39 matches. 

And when asked if the team has come a long way since the start of the campaign, Chambers replied: “I believe so, yes. 

“We had a lot of new players at the start of the season and it took a bit of time to gel. 

“But in the past 10-15 games we’ve really shown what we’re capable of and how good a side we can be on our day.” 

After a two-week break due to internationals, the Saddlers return to league action this weekend with a testing trip to fourth-placed Bradford. 

Stuart McCall’s promotion chasers remain unbeaten at home but Chambers is confident we can get a positive result if we perform at our best. 

“Bradford are in good form and in a good position in the table so it’ll be a difficult game, as it always is there,” Chambers commented. 

“We’ve got to try to get the performance level back to where it should be and we’ll give ourselves a massive chance if we do that.” 

Having squandered a two-goal lead to lose at Southend last time out, Chambers says the team are determined to “put things right” at Valley Parade. 

“We were disappointed with how the game turned out against Southend after putting ourselves in such a good position,” he said. 

“The first goal came from a quick free-kick and we could probably have stopped that at source. We needed to try to slow the game down and we came under quite a lot of pressure. 

“But we’ve got to try to get over that now and we’re looking forward to the next game. We need to put things right.”
