Sadler made more than 50 appearances for the Saddlers last season after he was released by Watford.

Dean Smith's side will arrive at the Broadfield on the back of an 11-game winless run but Sadler knows promotion-chasing Crawley will have to be on their guard.

"Dean is a great guy and a very talented young manager and he won't let their heads drop or their standards slip," he told the club website.

"There have been quite a lot of changes in personnel there since I left in May but they still have some very good players. It is going to be another tough game.

"We have seen all season what little there is to choose between teams at the top and the bottom of this division but we have two home matches coming up and if we can produce two solid home performances there's no reason why we cannot come out on top."

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
