Walsall utility man Richard Taundry has wished Preston's Adam Barton a swift recovery after the midfielder broke his leg on Saturday.
Taundry was involved in a tackle which left Barton with a broken leg and dislocated ankle, but he insists the tackle was innocuous and has wished Barton a quick and full recovery.
"I'd like to wish the lad a speedy recovery. He appeared to get his studs caught in the ground and went over. It's one of those things that happens in football. It was a 50/50 challenge and I hope he gets back to fitness as soon as possible."
"It's not nice and something I don't wish to see. I've never been involved in an incident like that before and I never want to again. I asked a few of their lads how he was afterwards. It's scary because you know it could happen to you."
The goalless draw at Deepdale was enough for the Saddlers to climb out of the relegation zone and Taundry feels that they could have won the game.
"It was a good point. We had chances to win the game and it shows how far we have come that we feel we should have taken more than just a point," he told the club's official website. "We'll keep fighting and hopefully be able to push up the table. It's do-or-die for us and we know from now until the end of the season we need to work harder than our opposition, which we did on Saturday."
