Neil Etheridge ready for battle

Walsall | Sport | Published:

New goalkeeper Neil Etheridge is expecting fierce competition from Craig MacGillivray to be Walsall's No.1 next season.

The Philippines international has been capped 44 times by his country, but knows he isn't going to walk into Dean Smith's side with MacGillivray around.

"I've been very impressed with Craig," Etheridge said.

"There is competition for the place, he played towards the end of last season and I know he is very hungry.

"Off the field we are getting on fantastically well. We have done a lot of work in the gym and we are both pushing one another to be the best we can be.

"He's slightly younger than me but is very eager."
