Matty Fryatt was the one to get Walsall's season back on course with Saturday's second-half winner against Swindon but goalkeeper Andy Oakes is also pleased with the efforts he has made in putting things right for the Saddlers.
After the worry of conceding eight goals in two matches, at Crystal Palace in the Carling Cup and in the 5-2 home horror show against Swansea, Oakes has managed successive clean sheets.
Having been a key part of Walsall's first win in six matches, Oakes believes the Swansea nightmare has been put firmly behind them. The Saddlers keeper adds that Paul Merson's men can look forward with renewed optimism to Saturday's first match at Huish Park to play promoted but struggling League One backmarkers Yeovil Town.
He said: "The day after the Swansea game was an absolutely dreadful feeling to wake up and recall what had happened.
"Certainly, as a goalkeeper, after a result like that I go over the game and think what could I have done differently to affect what happened and that's what I have done." Oakes puts the improvement down simply to staying alert for the entire match and cutting out individual errors.
"For a team to keep a clean sheet is not easy," he said. "It's all about concentration for the whole 90 minutes - one slip and it's all over and means nothing. You've got to stay switched on from first whistle to last."
