Walsall boss Dean Smith has been named League 1 Manager Of The Month for August.
The Saddlers picked up a thirteen points out of a possible fifteen and defeated Championship sides Brighton and Nottingham Forest in the Capital One Cup.
In August, the Saddlers defeated Rochdale, Blackpool, Coventry and Southend – whilst drawing with Oldham on the opening day. Our reward for our fine start is a home tie with Chelsea in the Capital One Cup Third Round.
We now have the dreaded manager of the month curse hanging over us as we host Bury tomorrow.
Everyone at Vital Walsall would like to congratulate Deano on the award.
