Mat Sadler Bemoans a Lack of Quality as Walsall Draw with Forest Green

Walsall boss Mat Sadler spoke to the media shortly after full-time.
Walsall boss Mat Sadler spoke of his frustration as his Saddlers once again failed to win as they held occasionally dominant Forest Green Rovers to a goalless draw.

Playing in front of a bumper crowd as the Walsall FC Foundation welcomed over 1,600 fans to WS1, the Saddlers failed to muster enough of a threat in the final third, with a point probably being more than they deserved.

The Saddlers were not without their moments as Freddie Draper and Danny Johnson forced former Walsall scholar James Belshaw into saves, with Sadler also insisting his team should have been awarded a spot kick when a Ryan Stirk appeared to strike the arm of Jordan Moore-Taylor in the first half.

Speaking to the assembled media, including the Express & Star, Mat said; "There were moments in the game that would've clearly lit the game up a little bit more.

"We had a good chance from a long throw where Freddie gets a good chance and the keeper makes a good reaction save. Then I think it's a penalty.

"The referee has got a really good angle of it as well. He is looking right down the barrel of it so I don't see how he doesn't give that.

"Those things didn't light the game up. We took a little bit of time to get into that, especially for the first ten or fifteen minutes of the game.

"When we got into that, we looked likely to create something, especially in the wide area with Ronan during the first half.

"But when that didn't come and the game didn't present that, it kind of petered itself into a stalemate.

"The big moments when there was a big opportunity, we didn't quite have the quality today."
