Mat Sadler Disappointed as Walsall's Winning Run Comes to an End

Here is how the gaffer saw the Saddlers' League Two meeting with Forest Green Rovers.
Walsall boss Mat Sadler was in a reflective mood after seeing his side suffer their first defeat in six games as they slipped to a two-nil defeat to Forest Green Rovers on Saturday afternoon.

Goals from former Saddler Emmanuel Osadebe and Kyle McAllister saw the 23rd-placed Forest Green boost their chances of survival whilst putting a bit of a dent in Walsall's promotion push.

The bad result wasn;t the only issue to arise from Walsall's trip to Nailsworth, as attacker Tom Knowles and striker Jamille Matt were both forced off before the second-half, adding to the already hefty injury list, whilst David Okagbue saw red in the second forty-five after picking up two quick bookings.

Speaking to the assembled media, incuding the Express & Star, Sadler said; "It felt like one of those days.

"In the first half, we had a couple of chances and we didn't quite bring our clinical boots with us today.

"Unfortunately, we didn't take the chances when they came. I thought we were in real control and we'd highlighted a few times throughout of making sure that we locked down through a transition, which is what they were looking for, to get a lot of men behind the ball. The one time that we didn't, it turned into a goal.

"Fair play to them for that because they're fighting for their lives and if we don't take our chances then it gives them that little bit of momentum to think it might be their day. We'll put this one down to experience.

"Whatever could go wrong probably did. Jamille and Tom having to come off, David getting sent off and Isaac missing the penalties."
