Matthew Taylor Pleased With the Win But Calls For More Goals

Walsall boss Matthew Taylor spoke to the media following the Saddlers' EFL Trophy clash with Northampton Town.
Speaking after his side secured a bonus point victory over Northampton Town, Taylor was keen to praise his team for their overall display before admitting, they need to score more goals.

Taking the lead via Emmanuel Osadebe's fourth-minute strike, the Saddlers were ultimately pegged back as Cobblers man Dylan Connolly levelled from the spot during the second-half.

The gaffer also sought to congratulate his team for their post-match shoot-out performance as Jack Earing, Tyrese Shade, Joss Labadie, and Kieran Phillips all hit home to take the extra point.

Speaking to the assembled media, Matthew said; "We did enough, I felt, between both boxes again. We're creating opportunities in every single game.
"We've scored again, early on. At the moment, though, one goal is not enough. We've got to score when we create those opportunities, and we had some great ones.
"We've got to take more of those chances. However, the players showed wonderful resolve to win the penalty shoot-out – especially given we lost the last time we were in that situation.
"That's something the players should take great credit for. It's not easy. I've been in that position, at this ground, and I've missed, so it's very difficult. The players dealt with that pressure very well."
