Walsall full of belief, says skipper Andy Butler
Walsall's players have the self-belief to stave off relegation from League One, insists skipper Andy Butler.
Dean Smith's Saddlers, the division's lowest scorers, go into Saturday's game with table-topping Charlton in 21st, one point behind Rochdale.
But Butler told BBC WM: "It's a long season yet and we know we've got the players here who can turn it around.
"The manager believes in us and we believe in him, so I think we'll rise from this position we're in now."
Butler, fit to return to the starting line-up after recovering from a knee injury, is convinced that Walsall are a better side than their league position suggests.
"We've been unfortunate with a few decisions," said the former Scunthorpe United defender. "We've had a few sendings off which have been harsh and they've cost us points at times
"Let's hope luck can turn around and get us a few decisions that help us and get some points on the board."
Meanwhile the Saddlers have invited midfield trialist Luke Mulholland to spend another week training with the club.
