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."

ood lord that's got me unnecessarily excited. Damn you Storey. Cut to Liverpool being crushed under the wheels of Sparky's Stoke Machine and Firmino brought off the bench to no effect. It's the hope that kills you.

think he'll do quite well. My only reservation would be Kagawa, who had similar stats to Firmino in the bundesliga before he came, but time will tell.
