Walsall players make it easy - Smith

League One manager of the month Dean Smith says Walsall's great start to the new League One season is all down to his players.

"It's been quite easy as a manager," he told BBC WM. "I've just been able to pick teams who I know I'm going to get everything from. And when they do blow up, I can put on really good players off the bench."

As well as sitting top of the table after five games, Walsall have also reached the third round of the League Cup with wins over Nottingham Forest and Brighton, to set up a home tie against Chelsea.
