Walsall showed their mental toughness when they came from behind to beat Oldham, according to Jamie Paterson.

The 21-year-old winger added two late goals to help secure a 3-1 win after Latics had taken the lead in the opening 20 minutes.

The Saddlers came into the game on the back of a shock defeat against Colchester which ended their four-match winning run, but Dean Smith's side recovered from the early setback to move within four points of the play-offs.

And Paterson believes the performance proved that they are well equipped to continue their climb up the table.

"It shows what a good team we have here because we didn't crumble when we fell behind," he told the club's official website.

"Maybe a couple of years ago we would have done, but we kept our heads up, kept talking to each other and got our reward in the end.

"We must try and get ourselves on another run now and see where it takes us. We've showed that we can compete with and beat some of the best sides in League One, so we have nothing to fear."

Paterson's double took his tally for the season to nine, which is just one short of his pre-season aim.

He added: "I said at the start of the season that I would have been happy with ten goals, but now I'm just one off that target I want to get as many as I can."

"I'm the type of player who will always try something different. Sometimes it will come off and sometimes it won't. Thankfully on Saturday it did."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
