"It Wasn't Good Enough" - Michael Flynn Reacts as Walsall Slip to Defeat

The gaffer spoke to the press shortly after referee Andy Haines had called for full-time.
Walsall Head Coach Michael Flynn has admitted his team's performance 'wasn't good enough' as they suffered their first defeat of the new campaign.

The Saddlers fell two goals behind with just twelve minutes of the first-half on the clock as Tyrell Warren and Sam McClelland scored from well-worked corner kicks.

Danny Johnson grabbed his sixth goal of the season early into the second-half but the damage had already been done, giving the gaffer plenty of things to ponder heading into the trip to Gillingham.

Speaking via the Express & Star, Flynn said; "The first half we were nowhere near it. We conceded two set plays, were outmuscled and out pressed.

"We kicked the ball too long playing with the wind. The first half it looked like we were still on the bus. It wasn't good enough.

"What I will say is at least they showed some character in the second half and kept pushing. They had chances as well.

"We know that. It was down our misplaced passes or switching off. We need to be better in the final third.

"We didn't hit the target enough or put the keeper under pressure enough. The first twelve minutes killed us."
