Walsall boss Michael Flynn has spoken to the media after guiding his side to their second win in as many games and sought to praise his players for their determined display.

Despite having several opportunities to grab a goal of their own, Mickey Demetriou's second-half own goal was ultimately enough to secure three points for the travelling Saddlers, as their perfect start was extended.

Heading into the game on the back of a fairly easy four-nil triumph over Hartlepool United, the Saddlers had to endure a much tougher afternoon at Rodney Parade, with Flynn's flyers forced to make some fifty clearances on the way to the win.

Flynn, who has added some sixteen players to his squad over the summer, admitted that Newport were probably the better of the two sides, with the gaffer believing the Reds won 'ugly'.

Speaking via the Express & Star, Michael said: "I know more than anything what a tough place this is to come, I thought Newport were very good today and I don't mind saying the better team probably lost.

"They are on a bad run of form at the minute, I think if they keep playing way they did today they will beat a lot of teams here, but I wanted to give the opposition credit, because I thought they were good today.

"Us, we dug in, we were solid, but were weren't very good with the ball at all, didn't create much at all, so it is very pleasing to get a clean sheet and the three points because as good as we were last week, we were nowhere near as good today, but we have managed to get the win and that is an important way to win games.

"It is an ugly win - it is a bittersweet moment if I am honest, because I have never wanted Newport to lose before, so it is a strange one, you can't have it every way, we got the points and we are buzzing to have another clean sheet."
