Keates: bounce back at Southend

23 October 2018

Dean Keates wants his side to show their bouncebackability when the Saddlers travel to Roots Hall this evening to take on Southend United.

After their first defeat on the road at Luton Town, Keates will be hoping the Saddlers don’t suffer consecutive losses for the first time this season.

With the Saddlers three points outside the play-off spots, the 40-year-old admits he faces a selection dilemma, with options available to him in every position.

“We have got to get ready and bounce back against Southend,” said Keates.

“We have looked back at the game and we need to make sure that the wrongs from the weekend are made right.

“They lost at the weekend, like us, so they will be looking to bounce back as well.

“We have now got two players in every position and I have got a decision to make for the game against Southend.

“The team were low after the defeat at the weekend. As always, we will be looking for a reaction like we have had on the few occasions we have had defeats.”
