Walsall midfielder Sam Mantom has today insisted we all need to stick together as they look to bounce back with victory at Burton on Saturday.

A win for the Saddlers could see them close the gap to the league 1 title to three points and with Burton set to face Sheffield United and Bradford in coming weeks, the Saddlers will be hoping to pile pressure onto the Brewers.

Speaking to Express and Star, Mantom said ‘It`s another game where our approach is to try and win. Burton are doing well this season so it would be nice to take points off them and catch them at the top.”

He said: ‘There`s going to be lots of surprise results. There`ll be teams who you think should win but end up dropping points.

“That includes us, but what we have to do is stick together when we go through the rough patches so when we hit form we can build some momentum.”

He added: “If we win our game in hand then we`re still right up there and looking at the automatic spots.

“It`s just unfortunate that we conceded a last minute goal against one of our promotion rivals (Wigan).

“We just need everyone to remain positive and all pull in the same direction because it`s going to be a rollercoaster ride right the way to the end.

“If we can get through this sticky patch and pick up all three points on Saturday, then I`m sure we`ll be OK.”
