Walsall boss Dean Smith has today said injuries had played it’s part at Wembley in their 2-0 defeat to Bristol City.
Smith said: “Tom Bradshaw looked like he hadn`t trained for a week or two. We`ve had a couple of players who were coming back from injury.’
“Cook, Anthony Forde and James Chambers had all been injured in recent weeks, so we probably weren`t at our energetic best by any stretch of the imagination’
Then that begs the question why O’Connor and Hiwula didn’t start as they had done in previous games?
