'Outfought & Outbattled': Brian Dutton Reacts to Walsall's Latest Defeat

Head Coach Brian Dutton spoke to the press following the Saddlers' League Two clash with Salford City.
After watching his side slip to their second defeat in as many games, Dutton admitted to being frustrated as another defensive error played a part in the team continuing its residence near the foot of the table.

Despite a fairly open spell during the first fifteen minutes of play, the Saddlers fell flat, struggling to make anything of note in the final third, with the frontline failing to find the back of the net once again.

Dutton, who recently admitted he is unsure if he will be the one to guide the team into 2021/22, also demanded more from his team as they entered an all too familiar flaccid display on the road to defeat.

Speaking to the assembled media, Brian said; "Salford are a top team. Everybody knows the spending power they have and they have quality players.

"They made it very difficult for us. But I was boiling up inside after that performance. That wasn’t a representation of me or Walsall football club. Sloppy goals we’ve given away.

"The first one was a massive defensive error and then I think the second one was offside but we’re still too deep.

"We’ve been outfought, outbattled, and outwit. We showed no character and personality in possession.

"It’s taken until the 90th minute before a defender has trusted a midfielder. The midfielder has received it on his back foot and has put a forward pass in behind. The 90th minute. That’s shocking."
