Walsall full back Jason Denetriou has today likened Walsall’s season to that of current Premier League leaders Leicester City.
The Saddlers, like Leicester are punching above their weight this season and Demetriou has praised the togetherness and work rate of both clubs.
Demetriou told Radio WM ‘They’ve got great characters and good team spirit. And that’s one of the main things we’ve got here. Added to our ability, our togetherness has been fantastic from the first day and is still strong.’
‘That’s 60 or 70% of it and we’ve got that in abundance. We think we’re the one of the better teams in this league. But we’ve always been kind of under the radar. A lot of people have been expecting us to slip away but we’ve managed to do well and stay up there.’
