Saddlers told to toughen up at home

Walsall have been told to toughen up at home in advance of Charlton's visit on Saturday.  The Saddlers have only won four times at home this season and only 37 times in the last hundred matches going back to 2008:

Once I would have said that it was just the sort of match Charlton would lose, but I think we are developing into a very determined, focused and resilient side under Chris Powell, notwithstanding his lack of previous managerial experience.

'Norfolk Saddler' makes an interesting point in the comments.   He argues that it's not our attack that is our USP, but our almost impenetrable defence (needless to say I don't agree with his comment that Huddersfield 'played us off the park').   I do believe that we now have the best central defensive pairing since Premier League days, plus an outstanding left back and a rapidly developing right back.  COYR!
