Mat Sadler Frustrated as Walsall Suffer Final Day Defeat

Here's how Walsall boss Mat Sadler saw the Saddlers' League Two meeting with AFC Wimbledon.
Walsall boss Mat Sadler has spoken of his frustration after his side conceded five goals on the way to a disappointing final day defeat to AFC Wimbledon.

Goals from Omar Bugiel, who grabbed a well-deserved hat-trick, Ronan Curtis and an unlucky Mo Faal, saw the Dons end the season on a high, in stark contrast to the Saddlers.

Walsall did find the back of the net themselves as Isaac Hutchinson notched his fifteenth goal of the season, but his penalty proved to be nothing more than a consolation as Wimbledon laid down a thrashing.

Sadler, who recently penned a new deal at the Poundland Bescot Stadium, admitted he was disappointed as his side ended the season in poor form, with a possible leap into the Play-Offs proving to be nothing more than pie in the sky.

Speaking to the assembled media, including George Bennett of the Express & Star, Sadler said: "I am frustrated that we have to stew on this result for sometime now.

"I look forward to talking to you after the first game next season when we've eradicated that with a win.

"That's the frustration for me today because the group have been amazing this season from minute one.

"They've moved the football club forward this season in many different ways and we wanted to finish the season strongly.

"We weren't able to do that and I think building into next year, those days that we've had there, and there's been a couple of them this season where the game seems to have gone away from us in quite a quick manner.

"We have to eradicate those days. They can't happen. Those are the things that I reflect on the game.

"I have to give it a little bit of perspective considering what we've done this season and going into the final game still going for the play-offs is something we haven't done for sometime but I can't help but leave disappointed."
