Matthew Taylor: "They Took Their Opportunities, We Didn’t"

Walsall Head Coach Matthew Taylor spoke to the press following the Saddlers' League Two clash with Forest Green Rovers.
Speaking after his team had suffered their third defeat in as many games, Taylor admitted his team failed to make the most of their goal-scoring opportunities as their slow start to the season continues.

The Saddlers started the game well but failed to capitalise upon any openings as the visitors reached the break with a comfortable three-goal lead thanks to a Matty Stevens brace and Jamille Matt's tap in.

Despite winning the second forty-five as Brendan Kiernan grabbed his first goal in a Walsall shirt, the damage had already been done, leaving the gaffer with plenty to do heading into Tuesday's clash with Scunthorpe United.

Speaking to the assembled media, Matthew said; "They took their opportunities, we didn’t – and at the moment, that’s the difference for us.
 
"We did well for the first fifteen minutes, but after that we didn’t deserve anything from the game.
 
"We got what I hope is a harsh lesson for the players, and we make sure it doesn’t happen again."
