The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

JON Whit­ney has called on his Wal­sall play­ers to kick on and chal­lenge for pro­mo­tion this sea­son.

The Sad­dlers fin­ished 14th in an in­con­sis­tent cam­paign and Whit­ney hopes his side can be more com­pet­i­tive this time around.

The 46-year-old said: “We ex­pect to com­pete in ev­ery game. We wanted to push on from where we fin­ished last year and I’m sure we can with this group.

“Every­one has got to fight to get some­thing from us and that’s what we’ve drilled into the play­ers.

“We have to be ruth­less, quite re­silient and have a bit of qual­ity as well.”
