Flynn Happy to Take a Point But Admits Walsall Only Have Themselves to Blame

The gaffer spoke to the media shortly after full-time.
Walsall Head Coach Michael Flynn has admitted that whilst he was happy to take a point from the league leaders, he felt his team didn't do all they could to retain their lead.

The Saddlers took the lead via on-loan Bristol City defender Joe Low in the first forty-five, but were ultimately pegged back by Ed Turns late in the game as the spoils were shared at Poundland Bescot Stadium.

Orient had to work hard for their point, with many of the Saddlers putting their bodies on the line to thwart them before Turns slammed the ball home with seven-minutes of normal time remaining.

Speaking via the Express & Star, Flynn first offered praise for the visitors, he said; "Credit where credit is due, they are a very good team they are not top of the league for nothing and overall, most people wouldn't be unhappy with a point against them.

"But I just felt the way we looked after the ball wasn't the best, we didn't look after it, our clearances invited pressure and that showed at the end.

"They were probably always going to pin us back in the second half or at least part of it and they did but when that happens you have to make the ball safe when you do get it, preferably being able to keep it.

"Having said that our defending was quite heroic in the second half, they put their bodies on the line and stuck with their men almost all times apart from the goal which to be fair was a great strike, it looked in all the way."
