Walsall skipper James Clarke paid tribute to the ‘outstanding’ 1,455 that made the trip to Northampton on Saturday saying it felt like the Saddlers were at home.
James said his namesake Darrell had told the players to get a bit of pride back in the shirt following a torrid few years under the previous regime.
The Saddlers faithful supported the team throughout with many Northampton fans stating it was the best away following they have seen at Sixfields.
Speaking to Official Site James Clarke said
“It’s unbelievable to be fair. I saw on Twitter how many tickets we sold and it looked a hell of a lot more.”
“When we came out it felt like we were at home.”
They got behind the lads, supported us and I think the gaffer said it’s time to get a bit of pride back in the shirt as well and they’ve showed how proud they are.”
It seems the feel good factor is continuing with three blocks practically sold out for this Saturday’s game against Forest Green.

As an opposition supporter I was impressed with Walsall’s level of enthusiasm and support throughout the game. A few windup merchants at the front but that’s all part of the game. Impressive! https://t.co/juh7tMX0yG
