Walsall manager Dean Smith has spoken to the local media following Sunday afternoon's Johnstone's Paint Trophy Final defeat to Bristol City, and has discussed the Saddlers fans, insisting "I'm proud of all the supporters."

Speaking to Adrian Goldberg on BBC WM, Smith said; "I'm proud of all the supporters. They got behind us in their droves. We just wanted to give them more to shout about. The build-up is superb, but Wembley is no place to be on the losing team. We were very down on the coach on the way home. We've just got to pick ourselves up now for the rest of the season.

"I feel bit frustrated with the performance, which did not merit the occasion. Usually I'm a 'glass half-full' sort of person. Last week, we were one of four clubs who have never played at Wembley. Now there's only three, so you have to look at it that way. But, on Sunday, we simply had too many players below par.

"It was a bit of a nothing game. Neither keeper had too many saves to make and we've conceded a poor goal. We were very wasteful in the final third and did not work their keeper enough. And, to do that against the top team in the league, you're going to struggle."
