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."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
