Dean Keates: Walsall Working to Cut Out Late Goals

Dean Keates: Walsall Working to Cut Out Late Goals

Walsall manager Dean Keates has spoken to the local press ahead of Saturday afternoon's League One clash with Accrington Stanley, and discussed the Saddlers' penchant for conceding late goals, admitting that it is something that they will need to work on in training.
The Saddlers, who have tasted defeat on just one occasion so far this season, are yet to concede a goal in the opening thirty-minutes of league football, but have shipped five in the final fifteen minutes of play, leaving themselves vulnerable to dropped points, or even defeat.

Speaking via the Express & Star, Dean said; "It something we needed to talk about. We need to look at some decisions which could be better. And we need to look at the point where we last had contact with the ball.

"It’s not a fitness thing – all the data and stats we get tell us it’s not that. It’s about making the right decisions and that’s something that needs to be addressed. But it is getting addressed."
