VIEW FROM INSIDE THE CAMP

John Gregory: "Walsall are a bit like ourselves, they are not in the best form but I think they are in a false position. They've got some quality and we have always had tough games against them but we need to impose ourselves at home and get everyone behind us." 



Adam Chambers (Walsall defender): "We head to Crawley on Tuesday determined to bounce back and get the three points. We're confident in our ability to go there and get a result."
