Michael Flynn: 'A Well-Deserved Win'

The gaffer shared his views shortly after full-time.
Walsall left it late to defeat ten-man Crawley Town on Saturday afternoon as on-loan Mansfield Town man Danny Johnson netted his twelfth goal of the season in a narrow 1-0 win.

The visitors opened the scoring via Dom Telford with just eleven minutes on the clock, but their lead was short-lived as Hayden White grabbed his second of the season just three minutes later.

Crawley were reduced to ten men as Ludwig Francillette picked up his second booking of the half with just thirty-nine minutes played, however, the Red Devils were able to thwart their opponents' advances until the last knockings of the game.

Speaking via the Express & Star, Flynn insisted the win was well-deserved, he said; "It was well deserved overall even though they had to play with ten men for a long time we were the better team and I am delighted we could get the win.

"We switched off a little bit for their first goal and it was good strike by Dominic Telford - I know what he can do having worked with him at Newport and he enjoyed that one going in.

"But I was pleased with the way we got back in it straight away which was pleasing. I made their goalkeeper the man of the match for some world class saves in the second half and we had untold amounts of pressure then and something like twenty-four shots in the whole of the game.

"But it took that little bit of finishing skill to win it for us in injury time and credit to Danny for that - again it was a great finish.

"It was a good crowd today for a good, exciting game, if nervy for the managers at time and hopefully, they will have seen things there that make them want to come back again."
