Following the shock exit of Darrell Clarke on Monday, Dutton has been setting up his philosophy this week with player meetings and training sessions.

In his first game the Saddlers played a possession-based style in stark contrast to Clarke's tenure in charge.

Although they lost that game Norman says his fellow players are looking forward to the challenge after having time in recent days to absorb the new messages.

“There’s been a lot of new information, especially in the last couple days, but good information,” Norman said.

“Everybody is now a lot more clued in to what we’re going to be asked for from now until the end of the season. Everyone is excited about that.

“We feel it (the style) suits the players that we have. The players are excited and in a good mood ready to take on the last games of the season.

“In a short space of time we’ve been given new information and instructions on how we want to go about it. The boys have responded really well.

“From that point of view we were happy and pleased and hopefully now we can do that and get the results we want.

“It was nice to get the ball down and try and play a few more passes. We enjoyed it but hopefully results can come with it because we’ll enjoy it a lot more that way. All of the boys came out of that (meeting) and we were really excited to get on the training pitch and get that instruction. See it first hand and what it’s all about.

“I’m really excited for it. All the boys are really happy and motivated.”
