Matthew Taylor: "It's a Win That Means So Much"

Saddlers boss Matthew Taylor spoke to the press following his team's League Two meeting with Sutton United.
After seeing his team make it seven all-competition games unbeaten, Taylor was keen to praise his players for their recent displays, as they received their just rewards for another determined display.

A goal from second-half substitute Tyrese Shade was enough to secure all three points during the Saddlers' first-ever trip to Gander Green Lane, but the Reds didn't have it all their own way, with the manager admitting they had to weather the storm.

With the team avoiding defeat for the whole of the month of October, their task is now to retain their run and continue their recent steady climb from the drop zone and towards the upper reaches of the table.

Speaking to the assembled media, Matthew said; "It’s a win that means so much, especially when you look at the performances we’ve put in this month.
"Even though we’ve picked up a fair number of points, I still don’t believe that we’ve picked up enough, because our performances have been, on the whole, quite good.
"Today was a different type of game for us. We had to weather the storm. I think Sutton are a very good team at what they do. The way they’re coached, the way they move the ball but also to mix the play - it was a tough afternoon for us.
"There were no surprises in what we were coming up against. Did we do enough to deserve to win the game? That’s arguable.
"But we have found a way to win the game. It was slightly hairy at the end giving needless free-kicks away, but to pick up another three points is fantastic.
"I hope now that what it does is helps the players to build their positive mindset towards what we’re trying to do.
"As a coach, I’m always extremely positive about the group of players that we have, because I think they are an exceptional group of footballers at this level.
"Now, I just hope this allows them to continue believing in what we’re doing. The process is becoming easier. There’s no quick fix, it’s continual hard work. I’m really pleased for the players."
