BAT­TLING IS KEY FOR RO­MAINE

The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

WHILE it is gen­er­ally ex­pected that at­tack­ing mid­field­ers con­trib­ute their fair share of goals, Wal­sall boss Dean Smith says it is Ro­maine Sawyers’ will­ing­ness to do the dirty work that makes him in­valu­able.

Sawyers’ re­cent dis­plays have brought crit­i­cism from Sad­dlers fans but af­ter scor­ing his first goal since Novem­ber against Swin­don on Tues­day, Smith is hop­ing the 23-year-old can kick on.

“He divides opin­ion at times and we think he is a ter­rific tal­ent, but the tal­ent needs to score more goals and cre­ate more as­sists,” ex­plained Smith.

“He does a great job for the team with­out the ball which some­times goes un­no­ticed.”
