Baird wary of Walcott danger ahead of Arsenal clash

Fulham defender Chris Baird has admitted that he is worried about facing quick Arsenal attacker Theo Walcott on Saturday.

The two played together at Southampton before Walcott joined Arsenal and, as Baird has been utilised as a left-back for Fulham, the pair will be battling each other for 90 minutes this weekend, which the Northern Ireland international is not looking forward to.

When asked if he was excited about coming face to face with his old teammate, Baird told Sky Sports: “No, no, he is very quick. Theo was fantastic, even at such a young age [at Southampton]. Obviously he was thrown into the team but the more games he played, the more confident he got, scoring a few goals. His pace always caused defenders problems. I am glad he is doing well at Arsenal. He deserves it.”
