Clayton Ince feels many of the Walsall players have a point to prove this season.
The Saddlers sit atop League Two after summer managerial appointment Richard Money brought in several cast-offs from other clubs.
Ince was among those, having been released by Coventry City, and he has proved to be a revelation between the posts.
He has yet to concede a goal at home in the league and has pinpointed a reason for Walsall's current run of results.
"The manager has ambition and the players he has brought in are players with ambition," Ince told [i]Sky Sports News[/i].
"The players he brought in didn't get opportunities at other clubs, so we're here now to show we still have it in us.
"When we left the other clubs, they missed out on the ability we're showing now."
The Trinidad & Tobago international also praised his defence for their work in helping him to set a club record of nine consecutive clean sheets at home.
He added: "I think it's not just my effort, I think it's a whole team effort.
"We just know one day it will happen (conceding a goal), but we are just keeping our fingers crossed that the goal will stay locked up and we can keep it as long as possible."
