Keates urges fans to get behind the team ahead of home run

26 October 2018

Dean Keates has urged the fans to get behind the team as the Saddlers prepare for a run of five consecutive home matches.

Over the next 18 days, the Saddlers will host Wycombe, Burton and Charlton in League One and entertain Coventry and Port Vale in the FA Cup and Checkatrade Trophy respectively.

And after back-to-back defeats, Keates wants the Saddlers’ supporters to come out in force, starting tomorrow against Gareth Ainsworth’s improving Chairboys.

“Coming into this five-game period at home, it’s an opportunity for the fans to get behind the players and give us a lift. We need them,” said Keates.

“It’ll be a difficult game against Wycombe.

“Gareth Ainsworth worked hard and was very honest in his career and that’s what they will be as a team. They’ll be a fully committed team and be in our face.

“They’ve got someone up front in [Adebayo] Akinfenwa who, with his style of play, will make it tough for us.

“All being well, we can start brightly and get that feel-good factor back in the stadium.”
