"We Need to Kill Teams Off" - Flynn Frustrated as Walsall Are Held to a Draw

The gaffer spoke to the media shortly after full-time.
Walsall boss Michael Flynn has called upon his team to show a better killer instinct and put games to bed after a late Cameron Norman goal saw the Saddlers and Newport County take a share of the spoils at Poundland Bescot Stadium.

Going into the game n the back of a frustrating winless run, the Saddlers looked to be about to earn their first win of the month after Isaac Hutchinson had given his side the lead in the first-half.

However, after failing to take one of a handful of chances to add another goal, Norman was on hand to secure a point for the visiting Exiles, much to the frustration of the gaffer.

Speaking to the assembled media, including reporters from the Express & Star, Flynn said; "I've said it all season that we need to kill teams off and we certainly needed to do it today.

"They didn't look like scoring in the first half or for large parts of the second and the one they did get was due a large part to sloppy defending by us as the lad got free to put the ball home.

"They could have won it as well - not that they would have deserved to - if the final pass had been there late on when their strike was free it could have been the winner.

"We need to be a bit more direct and by that I mean not taking so many passes before we shoot or releasing the ball earlier for someone to have a shot.

"I think we were guilty of that in the second half, not that we played badly, we defended well and our build up play was good but we just couldn't get that second goal and kill the game off."
