Walsall v MK Dons reaction

Walsall v MK Dons reaction

On saturday Walsall's performance was poor and MK Dons deserved there share of the points. However despite seven wins in eight home games with no goals conceeded people are still trying to hit the panic button.

Some of this stems from our relatively poor away form, which means our home form is more important. Also a number of fans have shown concern over a lack of a gifted (for league two) creative midfielder. Our in ability to get the ball down and play is seen as proof of this shortfall, and there is a fear that this will become more evident as teams shut up shop against walsall at Bescot. Also the fact Scott Dann was brought on as a striker shows another area which fans know the team needs strenghtening, top of the league and you need to bring on a centre half to play up front??

All these are valid points but they are also things which DD is aware, he is working on bring the right striker into Bescot and his view that we can create goals from creativity out wide as long as we are strong in the centre. So guys don't panic we are doing better than we had ever hoped, we will lose another game at some point we may even have a bad run but it will not be the end of the world this team has something about them. This season we have picked up points when playing badly and it is this resilience that will see us through.
