The Saddlers were 2-1 ahead and in control against Exeter at the weekend until defender Manny Smith saw red in the 66th minute - a decision right-back Taundry felt was unjust.

The Grecians hit back to triumph 4-2 and leave Walsall just three points ahead of the drop zone, albeit knowing victory against the Terriers this weekend will be enough due to their considerably better goal difference.

"We looked comfortable with 11 men, especially in the first half. And then things went to pot in the second half when Manny got sent off, our shape changed and everything," Taundry told Saddlers Player.

"We just need to have a look at ourselves and produce a win next week."

He added: "It's squeaky bum time. It's not a nice position, nobody in football likes to be at the bottom of the league. Obviously, we play Huddersfield and we'll look to get the three points and see us safe."

ow is the time for Allardyce to finally get a chance at a big club please. He is likely to have a number of great offers for his services this summer, but who will he choose? Will it be Liverpool, Real Madrid, Dortmund or Man City?

thought exactly this when the Match of the Day pundits were peddling this line. Is it really not okay for fans of a club to have some ambition these days then?
