Michael Flynn: 'Poor Defending' Came at a Cost

Michael Flynn spoke to the media shortly after full-time.
Walsall suffered their thirteenth defeat of the league season on Saturday afternoon as two first-half goals saw opponents Crewe Alexandra ease to victory.

Speaking to the assembled media shortly after referee Carl Boyeson had called for full-time, Head Coach Michael Flynn admitted his side was guilty of some poor defending, with the former Newport County boss forced into two early changes.

Michael said; "It was poor defending and the first twenty minutes cost us because we were two-nil down and that was always going to be hard to come back from away.

"I took off Liam and Joe because I felt we needed to be more attacking and I felt we did give it a go second half but it didn't go our way, that's not an excuse but I still feel the spirit was there even with ten men."

The Saddlers were reduced to ten men in the second-half as Joss Labadie picked up two yellow cards and, although he feels the second booking was harsh, the gaffer admitted his team have to become more disciplined.

Flynn continued; "That's the captain sent off in successive weeks - it is something we will have to look at the discipline aspect but I thought the second yellow was a bit harsh.

"And if there were any positives from this afternoon, we stuck together after that and prevented it from being three or four which it could have been."
