Chambers determined to avoid another relegation battle

3 May 2018

Captain Adam Chambers is determined to avoid another relegation battle next season.

The Saddlers have struggled for much of the campaign and only guaranteed League One survival with a game to spare.

And the experienced midfielder does not want to be in the same situation again in 2018/19.

“Personally, I’m not happy with the season we’ve had,” said Chambers.

“It seems a little bit wrong to be celebrating staying up as you want to be fighting at the other end of the table.

“With the situation we found ourselves in, the target over the last few games was to be safe and we managed to achieve that.

“We need to look forward to next season now and make sure we’re not in the same situation next year.

“I don’t know what the gaffer has got planned but you imagine there’ll be changes as we’ve been very inconsistent.

“We need to make a few changes and look to be pushing at the other end of the table.”

Safety was assured after a 1-1 draw at Bradford on Tuesday night – and Chambers was relieved to finally get the job done.

“We knew we needed a point before the game and we would have taken a 0-0,” he said.

“It was probably a little bit more eventful than we would have liked, but we got the result we needed.

“We did well in the first half, played some good stuff on a difficult pitch and created some good chances.

“The equaliser just before half-time knocked our confidence a little bit and they came out at the start of the second half really well.

“They had a couple of chances and it was just about seeing out the pressure.”
