MATCH PREVIEW | Demetriou looking forward to Banks's Stadium return

25 November 2016

Cypriot International on his return to Walsall...

Jason Demetriou returns to his former stomping ground tomorrow with his focus solely on helping Blues to three points.

Demetriou spent last season at Banks’s Stadium and helped the Saddlers to a play-off berth where Barnsley beat them to reach Wembley.

In the summer the Cyprus international moved to Roots Hall and has since nailed down a regular spot at right back.

Ahead of the game Demetriou said: “I left there with some good memories and we had a good season last year.

“It was my first year back in English football after a long time so I’ve got a lot of good memories there but we’ve got to do our job. We need the three points to continue our current climb.

“There’s been a few text messages but to be honest there aren’t many players left because a few boys chose to leave for whatever reason.

“There's a few of my mates; the goalkeeper I‘m good friends with and he’s still there. There are some good people there so it's nice to keep in contact with them.”

Walsall come into the game following a 4-0 defeat to Rochdale on Tuesday, but Demetriou knows better than anyone what to expect.

“They’ve got a lot of young boys and sometimes with young players you find inconsistency, but then again on a good day they can find a performance,” he added.

“They’re still trying to play football so it’s going to be a tough game.”
