Devlin Admits to Pompey Error But Insists Confidence is Still High

Walsall right-back Nicky Devlin has spoken ahead of this weekend's League One clash with bottom-of-the-table Bury and insisted that confidence remains high despite the Saddlers enduring a lengthy winless run.
Devlin, who has made thirty first-team appearances since joining the club from Ayr United on a free transfer last summer, went on to admit that he was at fault for the goal that saw Portsmouth secure the win on Saturday afternoon.

Speaking via the club's official website - Saddlers.co.uk, Nicky said; "The feeling is still good. I’ve got to put my hands up - it was probably my mistake that led to their goal. We should have taken something from that game and we know that. Defensively we were a lot better than we have been. But confidence is still high in the squad - we’ve maybe not been getting the results but we know that if we turn up, we can win any game.

The 24-year-old defender then went on to talk about Bank Holiday Monday's clash with Bradford City, admitting that he was disappointed as the team were robbed of the chance to right the wrongs from the defeat to Pompey, he continued; "Obviously we’re disappointed. We only had one day to prepare and we wanted to put right what went wrong on Saturday against Portsmouth. For now we’ve got to prepare for a massive game against Bury next Saturday.

"If you ask any of the boys and the management, we’d have wanted to get out there and get points on the board. It lets other teams put pressure on us but now we’ve just got to prepare for Bury and make sure we get three points there."
