Graham Biggs Pleased With Young Saddlers' Dominant Display

Walsall FC Academy Manageer Graham Biggs has spoken to club journalists following his side's one-all draw with Tranmere Rovers, which saw an Alex McSkeane strike cancel out Jake Burton's opener, and admitted that he was pleased to see his side secure a point despite dominating large portions of the match.
Long-time club servant Biggs, who was appointed academy boss following the departure of Neil Woods in November 2016, has seen his side struggle over the early stages of their EFL Youth Alliance and Alliance Cup campaigns went on to back his side to 'go on and beat a team by a considerable amount of goals', but only if they can make better use of their lengthy spells with the ball.

Speaking via the club's official website - - Graham said; "I’m very pleased with the performance. We pretty much dominated the game after going behind. We got the equaliser and were unlucky not to go on and get the winner.

"The way we are trying to play is the right way. Creating chances like that, we will go on and beat a team by a considerable amount of goals if we can go on and convert them."

Biggs, first joined the club as an academy coach in 2000 and has progressed through the ranks to assume the important positions of Centre of Excellence Manager and most recently Head of Academy Coaching, felt Lady Luck wasn't on his team's side.

The 55-year-old continued; "I hate to say it but we’re just not having the rub of the green. The hardest thing in any game of football is to score a goal but we are creating so many chances; just to score the one goal is disappointing.

"We’ll work on playing in and around the final third to see if we can change that but performance-wise I think it was outstanding."
