Matthew Taylor: "It Has Been Coming"

Walsall Head Coach Matthew Taylor spoke to the press following the Saddlers' League Two clash with Oldham Athletic.
Speaking after his side had earned their first away league win of the season, Matthew Taylor sought to praise the players as they displayed a welcome ruthless desire to take the game to their opponents.

Arriving at the match on the back of a four-game unbeaten run, Taylor was happy to see the Saddlers show just what they are capable of as they edged further from the battle to beat the drop.

Taking the lead via Jack Earing's second goal of the season, the Saddlers went on to double their tally via George Miller before the sides cancelled each other out during the second forty-five.

Speaking to the assembled media, Matthew said; "I enjoyed our ruthlessness. It is what we have been asking for. Tonight, the players delivered in the final third. In the first-half, we had three shots on goal and scored two goals.
 
"That is the difference between winning and losing at any level of football. I have spoken many times about the amount of chances we create. Tonight you saw a ruthlessness which I thought was fantastic. It has been coming."

After taking a two-goal lead before half-time, the Saddlers were pegged back by Hallam Hope's second-half header but were ultimately able to secure the points as Emmanuel Osadebe re-established the two-goal advantage.

Taylor, who recently added former Tranmere Rovers attacker Otis Khan to his squad, went on to praise the Saddlers for digging in and avoiding a second Latics goal and continue their recent run.

Matthew added; "It was a tough spell, but the players dug in for each other. At some point you have to surrender space on the pitch, and we chose to do that out wide, and we dealt extremely well with the crosses.
 
"Again it was a set piece which was our undoing, and we won’t ignore that. It was fantastic to see George score again. That is five goals from him now. Jack does that every day in training, passing the ball into the back of the net.
 
"The third goal, the composure once Emmanuel had worked so hard, I am really pleased. The fans deserved that for their support. Emmanuel is working extremely hard, as is everyone else and is no surprise we are starting to see the rewards."
