"They Kept Going All the Way" - Michael Flynn on Walsall's Draw With Stockport County

The gaffer spoke to the media shortly after full-time.
Walsall boss Michael Flynn has spoken to the media and sought to praise his team for their determination as they left it late to take a point from their trip North.

Speaking shortly after the Saddlers and Stockport County had played out a one-all draw at a well-attended Egdeley Park, Flynn admitted that the match was far from a classic encounter, but welcomed the point as his side's search for a win stretches to another month.

After winning their first two league games of the season, the Saddlers have now gone nine without a win and, as Saturday's result sees their latest run of defeats end at three games, the gaffer went on to insist it's something to build upon heading into Tuesday's clash with Northampton Town.

Speaking to the assembled media, Flynn said; "They kept going all the way. It was a poor performance, but we have played better and not got any points so it is something for us to build on at least.

"I hope it gives us a boost but I have just said to them, I don't think we could have played any worse today if we tried, it was painful to watch if I am honest.

"But we kept going, we looked the fitter team at the end and we got a point. I am not going to get carried away but at least we have something to build on."

The Saddlers were backed by over 1,200 travelling fans and, although they made their feelings known during various stages of the contest, the manager insists he understands their frustration and agrees things have to improve.

Flynn continued; "They want to see their team do well, and so do we, we want to do well. It was a fantastic turnout, over 1,200 here and at least they will have something to half smile about and be happy about on the coach home, but the performance needs to be better.

"Not many times has the performance not been there, the result yes, but the performance has generally been good."
