The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

DEAN Smith be­lieves Wal­sall will re­main on an up­ward curve with him in charge, af­ter the 44-yearold signed a new 12-month rolling con­tract last week.

It hasn’t al­ways been plain sail­ing at Wal­sall for Smith, who took over from Chris Hutch­ings in 2011, but the Sad­dlers find them­selves on the pro­mo­tion hunt – hav­ing con­ceded just six goals in League One prior to this week­end.

“My cur­rent deal was up at the end of the sea­son, so I’m glad it’s been sorted,” said Smith.“I feel like I’m get­ting bet­ter as a man­ager and I just want to keep de­vel­op­ing. And I’m happy with how we are de­vel­op­ing as a club.”
