Walsall boss Dean Keates has today said how happy he is with the Saddlers start to the season but wants to get to fifty-two points as soon as possible.

The Saddlers have won four out of our five league games so far this season and despite being joint second the boss is looking for safety around March so the club aren’t dragged into a relegation dogfight like last season.

Speaking to the Express and Star, Dean Keates said

“As I said at the beginning of the season, the target was about making sure there was progression.”

“It’s about getting to 52 points as quick as we can, if I’m honest, making sure this football club is not looking over its shoulder come March and April time.”

“We are in a good place but there is a long, long way to go.”

The Saddlers take a break from league action tomorrow night as we host Macclesfield in the Carabao Cup Second Round, hoping to make it into the Third Round of the League Cup for only the second time in sixteen years.

The Saddlers will have four out of the next six league games at home. By the end of September we could be halfway towards that fifty-two points target!
