Walsall Development Coach John Ward has spoken to club journalists following Tuesday afternoon's Final Third Development League defeat to Wigan Athletic, and has praised his side for their commitment, as the match was played in difficult conditions.

Speaking via Saddlers.co.uk, John said; “It was similar to the game we played a few weeks ago. It was a very tight and very closely fought encounter. We again competed really well in very difficult conditions, as did Wigan.

“The wind, the rain and the heavy pitch made it difficult but both teams worked very hard to provide a good game of football.

“I’m disappointed with the start. It gave us a problem and I was looking at the side thinking ‘come on then’ we need to improve. To their credit they done exactly that and what pleased me most is that we didn’t go under.

“We found a goal back by half time, and in the 15 minutes going into the break we could have been level but in general it was a good response from the team.

“We changed the shape a little in the second half. Sean wanted to look at something slightly different. Again it was a tight second period but towards the end Liam Roberts made two excellent one on one saves to keep us in it.”
