Walsall manager Jon Whitney has spoken to club journalists following Tuesday evening's EFL Cup Round One exit to Yeovil Town, and has admitted that he and his team must learn from the defeat, but not dwell as attention turns to the upcoming clash with Oldham Athletic.

Speaking via Saddlers.co.uk, Jon said; "We said at half-time that it would be one lack of discipline that would cost either team as it was a really close encounter. That’s what cost us the free-kick. We switched off - I thought we were ball watching a little bit - and they had two at the back stick. A little bit of ill-discipline has cost us but there will be opportunities for us to learn from it, because we have to get better.

"But we didn’t get too carried away after beating Wimbledon and we won’t get too down with this result either, and I’ve said that to the players. We have to learn from it and move on. We’ll pick ourselves up, analyse the game and move on to the weekend."
