Walsall head coach Sean O’Drisoll felt the defeat was harsh but felt whoever scored first would win the game with the Saddlers conceeding two goals when chasing the game.
O’Driscoll said ‘I think they’re disappointed more with the scoreline than the way we performed. We got caught, I suppose, chasing the game that was always going to be reliant on whoever scored first.
‘It was always going to be a second ball game, (them) getting the ball forward early to Morison and Gregory and sort of play off that.
‘For a large part I thought we did really well, just couldn’t quite get a goal – blocks on the line and hitting the post, hitting the bar, but their spirit was really good.’
Walsall have now lost four out of their five games at home this season and now travel to Crewe before the crunch double header against Wigan (H) and Burton (A).
