Walsall FC's Ashley Hemmings back on track, says Dean Smith

Walsall | Sport | Published:

Dean Smith today backed Walsall wing wizard Ashley Hemmings to continue his excellent start to the season.

Hemmings has been a standout performer over the opening two games, both won by the Saddlers.

The 22-year-old, who Walsall signed from Wolves last summer, enjoyed a similarly quick start to his first campaign at the Banks's before his form tailed off.

But Smith believes an older, more focused Hemmings has the mindset to avoid a similar dip.

"Last year was his first year out at another club. He was still finding his feet," said Smith.

"But he is a really focused individual. He is good around the place and I think he feels part of it now.

"He sees his opportunity and he wants to take it."
