Vadaine Oliver's brace in extra time earned the Imps their win after Richard Taundry had struck an 81st-minute equaliser for the hosts.

With the Saddlers now without a win in 11 games, Smith has urged his players to force a change in fortunes and rediscover their impressive early-season form.

He said: "I have told the players not to feel sorry for themselves.

"At the moment, the players are lacking a bit of confidence. I need to help them, but they also need to help themselves.

"We need to turn it around. We have fallen short. I thought we should have won this game."

s it the same people that complain about Chelsea that complain about Mayweather? You should by now know what to expect from both, if you can't appreciate how good they are at nullifying their opponents then don't watch them.

do concede though, that getting rid of Luiz has made them less entertaining. In the same way that driving with both eyes open is less exciting, but probably a good idea.
