"We Should Have Been Out of Sight" - Flynn's Frustrations Continue as Walsall Slip to Defeat

The gaffer spoke to the media shortly after the referee had called for full-time.
Walsall Head Coach Michael Flynn has spoken of his frustration as the Saddlers extended their winless run to five games as they wasted a handful of opportunities on the way to defeat against Grimsby Town.

Despite taking the lead with just five-minutes on the clock - on-loan Mansfield man Danny Johnson netting his seventh goal of the season - a Harry Clayton second-half double saw the visitors snatch all three points.

After seemingly looking to protect their lead, along with a few Tom Knowles misses, the Saddlers dropped yet more points from a winning position, with the gaffer admitting much of the recent run is down to a lack of cutting edge when in strong positions. 

Speaking via the Express & Star, Flynn said; "Because we don’t punish teams. That’s the second game now, one against Stevenage and today we should have been out of sight.

"When you don’t punish teams, you can sense it. I turned to Hats and said 'this has dĂŠjĂ  vu written all over it'.

"The first goal we gave away was a disgrace, letting people run across you, slow recovery runs, and it’s a shame because they did work hard.

"But I would rather the stats be a bit lower and have three points on board. We weren’t fluent in midfield. The midfield was non-existent.

"I always say we win together and lose together, but if we take our chances, the game is done. It's as simple as that. Again, we have let a team off the hook, at both ends."
