FROM THE DUGOUTS

Mat Sadler: “You can see from the results they’ve had and the goals they’ve scored that they’re a really good attacking team who cause problems that you don’t see week in week out so it will be a tough game for us.”

 

Michael Flynn: “We are playing some very attractive football and it is not like we are scoring every shot, so hopefully it will continue. And as I have said, I don’t care if we win 1-0 or 9-8 it is just about getting the three points, but I would rather a 1-0, just for the record.”

The Saddlers welcome back Liam Gordon into the fold following his return from international duty with Guyana.

Tom Knowles has also trained this week after missing last weekend’s trip to Salford City through illness.

Manny Monthé scored a dramatic injury time winner in Wiltshire to secure three points on Boxing Day in the league while the contest at the Poundland Bescot Stadium in March ended in a goalless draw.

This season, Flynn’s Robins are the league’s top goalscorers and are unbeaten so far.
