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."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
