SMITH ON SHAKERS DRAW

27 October 2012

Honours even at Gigg Lane...

SADDLERS' boss, Dean Smith has reflected upon our 1-1 draw at Bury.

"Football was not the winner today," he said. "To be fair, it's the worst we've played on the ball. We had to show other qualities today, but credit to Bury, they pressed us high and didn't allow us to settle and play our football.

"It was nice to see us score a scrappy goal; Will Grigg showed plenty of endeavour and deserved it.

"I was disappointed with the defending for their goal. Yes, the lad struck it well but we allowed him to turn and get in the strike.

"We'll take the positives out of the game. As a team we're continuing to evolve and this is another point to add to our tally. There have been games where we've played a lot better than this but not got anything out of it in terms of points on the board, so we'll take this point.

"We're still learning and getting better. Now we move on to next weekend's FA Cup tie and will make sure that we are well prepared for that."

Andy Taylor was forced out of the action with a hamstring injury.
