Gaffer on Saddlers challenge

26 November 2013

Nigel Clough expects Walsall to come to Bramall Lane and attack in Tuesday's League One encounter:

"Walsall play almost the same way both at home and away. Dean (Smith) has given the club some real stability and season after season formulated a very competitive squad.

"They are well organised and are reaping the rewards of put some real solid foundations in place over a long period of time.

"Walsall are a great example to a lot of clubs, they are well run and achieve plenty whilst remaining to live within their means. For a number of years they have been a well run club with a good manager.

"The two wide lads, Lalkovic (on-loan from Chelsea) and Baxendale are probably as good as anything in the division, whilst Craig (Westcarr) has plenty of place down the middle."

On his own side, Clough added: "We have a tough five months ahead of us, but we remain confident that we have enough within the squad to survive at least.

"Staying up is the bottom line given our current position and at the moment that is our main focus.

"On Tuesday, I really want to see us building on Saturday's win, but again, we can't just come out and attack from the off, we must be mindful of keeping the game tight.
