JARVIS PICKS OFF CHERRIES; BOURNEMOUTH 0 WALSALL 2 Saddlers Boss Salutes His Two-Goal Hero


Byline: JAMES MARTIN

WALSALL boss Dean Smith is adamant Ryan Jarvis will more than prove his doubters wrong after he opened his Saddlers account with a double against Bournemouth.

The 25-year-old made just 14 appearances for Leyton Orient last season before being ditched by Russell Slade in the summer - however Smith had no hesitation in swooping for him.

Jarvis started Walsall's Carling Cup defeat to Middlesbrough but in League One so far this season has been nothing more than a bench player.

However, an ankle knock to Jon Macken presented Slade with an opportunity for his first League One start - and Smith thrust him straight in for the trip to the Cherries.

And it paid off and then some with Jarvis opening the scoring from the spot in the 15th minute after a Liam Feeney handball and heading home a second after the restart.

"I know what Ryan can do and it wasn't just his goals that I was pleased with, I thought his all-round play was fantastic," said Smith, who had worked with Jarvis at the O's. "His hold-up play and bringing others into play was really good to watch and he really worked down the side of their team and that was really pleasing too.

"He looked bright in the reserves on Wednesday and Jon Macken went down injured and couldn't make it and I had no qualms in putting Ryan in.

"He has set out his stall now for the rest of the season and I hope he can continue this type of form for a while.

Confident "There might have been a few doubts about him not having played a lot of games over the past few years but this is his chance to prove people wrong.

"That's what I said to him when I signed him. I told him that I believed he was capable of doing it and now it is up to him to continue it. He is a clever footballer.

"He was confident enough to take the penalty and scored a good header - it was a great performance from him. It was his first league start and he proved his worth by getting two goals and winning the game for us in the end."

Bournemouth started the brighter of the two sides and Steve Lovell nearly opened the scoring in the third minute, while Marc Pugh also went close with a header. …
