Under fire Walsall boss Jon Whitney has today told the Express and Star that he was happy with a point at lowly Bristol Rovers and hopes the point will galvanise our season.

The Saddlers have now gone six games without a win and find themselves just outside the relegation zone but Whitney believes it gives them a platform to build from.

Whitney said

“I think a point was a fair result – especially after our first half performance,” Whitney said.

“The desire was there from both sides. They put us under a lot of pressure in the second half so I think a point is fair.

“But I think we should have gone two-goals up in the first half. It was a blatant penalty and a really poor decision.

“That could have changed the game and at the moment those decisions are going against us because Adam`s was out the box as well.

“Overall though, a point was a fair result so I am happy.’

“But we are learning, and it`s nice to be able to learn with a 1-1 because I thought some of our attacking play was excellent.”
