Another massive point for the Saddlers in a game by all accounts where we more than matched the big spending, Canio-less Robins. Saddler Nic was there and liked what he saw:
It shows how far we’ve come to feel a bit disappointed coming away from third in the league with a point. A combination of better luck at our end and better decision making/finishing at theirs would have led to us bringing three points back.
Although they put us under pressure in the second half, we didn’t look like conceding. I can’t remember them creating a single chance. Not once did they thread a ball through in behind, and we always looked likely to win the aerial contest which we did. On the whole though, it was a fantastic away performance and we can be proud of every single player wearing the shirt today.
Special mention for Butler, Downing, both of whom were excellent, Adam Chambers who hardly put a foot wrong, and Westcarr, who was our best player in the first half. Peach of a ball in from Hemmings for the goal, lets hope he can really push on now. Well done to everyone today, players were brilliant, as we’re the fans. We put blue coat to shame!!
