Walsall's Andy Butler heads into Saturday's clash against Huddersfield determined to prove Town were wrong to let him go.

Stand-in skipper Butler, 27, arrived at the Banks's Stadium as a free agent in November and has done a sterling job at the heart of defence.

He is looking to continue his fine form against the club he spent two years with before being released last summer, immediately on the back of a six-month loan spell at Blackpool in which he played a part in the club's promotion to the Premier League.

Ahead to Saturday's home clash against the fourth-placed Terriers, Butler told Walsall's official website: "I'm looking forward to the game. I feel I have a point to prove and it's up to me to show them I can do the business.

"It'll be a tough game. They are up there for a reason so we're going to have to work hard but we go into the game on the back of two decent away performances which have given us heart. We need to be able to build on this momentum and start doing the business at home."

Speaking about caretaker manager Dean Smith, Butler added: "We're responding well to him and he's doing a good job. There seems to be a buzz about the place right now and a really positive spirit."
