“You always want to start the season with a win, and I am happy that we have. The clean sheet is a great start for us and defensively, we looked strong, we looked sound and we stopped Walsall from hurting us. Even though the basics of goalkeeping from Joe Murphy were of a high standard, he hasn’t had a lot of saves to make and that’s down to the work of the lads in front of him.”
“We got in very quickly with Jermaine, signing him has shown our intent and I have no doubt that there will be a lot of disappointed clubs, both at Championship and League One level, now that we have secured the signature of a renowned goal scorer. Jermaine is a player that has already been involved with teams that have won promotion to the Championship from this level.
“The two late goals have papered over the cracks but there are a few positives. The performance of Joe Murphy, who kept the score line down. He was our best player on the pitch and the performance of young Tsun Dai – who was outstanding when he came on.
