Walsall goal hero Andy Butler was quick to hail the Saddlers stars for what he described as a superb team performance.
The skipper wrote himself into Saddlers folklore when he headed home from close range on 68 minutes at Molineux last night.
Butler, who became the first Walsall player to net a winner at Wolves since Andy Rammell in 1999, admitted the goal was a special moment on a personal level.
But he was quick to praise the rest of the side and believes the win was courtesy of the whole team’s hard work. “It was special. You can’t ask for more than a 1-0 win and a goal but it came from every single player working hard, including the lads who were on the bench,” he said.
“We didn’t come here and sit back and soak it up, we went at it from the first minute and I think we dominated the game towards the end. I missed a chance on Saturday from a similar distance. To be fair I couldn’t really miss, it fell on a plate for me.” The win was the second on the bounce for the Saddlers following their win away at Crewe on Saturday.
“We have shown what we can do when we put our minds to it and perform like we did last night,” said Butler.
“No-one shirked a challenge. I don’t think Wolves could live with our tempo and they faded a bit towards the end.”
