Luke Leahy: Walsall 'Nowhere Near Good Enough'

Walsall defender Luke Leahy has spoken to the press following Saturday afternoon's disappointing defeat to then bottom-of-the-table Bradford City, and admitted that the team's performance was simply pathetic, going on to say that the second-half was simply a shambles.
The Saddlers arrived at last weekend's match on the back of a duo of victories; including a Leahy-inspired win over Coventry City, and an Emirates FA Cup - Second Round triumph over Sunderland, and looked to build upon those results as they visited the struggling Bantams' Valley Parade.

Leahy, who has made thirty first-team appearances, and scored three goals so far this season, believes that there are some good players in the Walsall squad but they were nowhere near good enough at the weekend.

The Coventry-born left-back went on to admit that the Saddlers' overall display was simply pathetic, with the Bantams not scoring as many goals as maybe they could have.

Luke, who was speaking via the Express & Star, said; "It was not good enough, that second half was a shambles, it was pathetic. We have got some good players in that dressing room but we were nowhere near good enough. I can't explain it. It was pathetic.

"In the first-half we created a few good chances and could have been one or two up before they scored. But nobody is going to remember the first-half chances. It's the second half that everyone is going to remember. And we were not good enough.

"They could have scored five or six. They had a few more chances and luckily for us they didn't put them away. It was rubbish, pathetic. It was nowhere near good enough, the manager has told us that and he is bang on.

"It was horrible conditions but we needed to step up. Bradford played in the same conditions and won 4-0."
