Walsall boss Dean Keates believes he’s still the right man to steer the Saddlers away from relegation despite a 3-0 defeat to Coventry City yesterday.
The Saddlers have now lost TEN of our last thirteen in all competitions and currently sit just two points above the drop zone with thirteen games remaining.
Speaking to Express And Star , Keates said
“Am I the right man still for the job – definitely, I’ve got the fight in me,”
“I want to take this club forward.”
“I see myself in charge next weekend unless I am told any different.”
“It doesn’t matter I have played here and I’m from the area, the club will do what is right for the club to go forward.”
Following last nights defeat we ran a poll on our Facebook and Twitter channels if fans believed Dean Keates was still the right man for the job – early results suggest around 60% feel his time as Walsall boss is over and around 77% believe that the Saddlers will now get relegated from League 1.
It will be an interesting week at Walsall FC to see if the hierarchy still believe he’s the right man for the job.
The Saddlers host fellow relegation rivals Bradford City next weekend in a must win game for both sides.
