"We Were Excellent" - Michael Flynn Pleased With Walsall's Awayday Point

Walsall boss Michael Flynn spoke to the media shortly after the Saddlers' League Two meeting with Northampton Town.
Speaking after his team took a point from the their second-placed hosts, Flynn sought to praise his players for their resilient display which saw them avoid defeat for the fourth time in five league games.

The home side opened the scoring with just four minutes on the clock, Mitch Pinnock taking advantage of a poor goal-kick to slot home, but were ultimately pegged back via Conor Wilkinson, who unleashed a superb effort to level the scores.

With members of the local media in attendance, Michael said; "I thought we were excellent in the second half. We were very poor in the first half.

"Fair play to the lads, they held their hands up. They all said they could do better, and that's the character I want – honesty, respect for each other and digging deep when you have to.

"That second half has made me very proud of them. They've got to take the praise for that second half. It's all good me saying that I got into them.

"I did get into them, but they had to find it from within, and they did that. We want to win football matches. I thought we were excellent in the second half.

"We could've scored three or four. After a tough run of games, it's pleasing."

After going on a run of seven consecutive defeats, the Saddlers have recently found form earning wins against several of the title-chasers, form Flynn believes his players deserve credit for.

Michael continued; "That's ten points out of fifteen from the last five games – that's promotion form.

"So, they should be confident. It's about keeping them on the top of their game. We don't want to let bad habits creep in.

"But they deserve credit. I'm really pleased for those players. Sometimes I want to strangle them, but they're showing character, respect and togetherness.

"Those are the key components of any successful team – or a team that wants to be successful. You add in the quality, but they're ticking boxes at the minute."
