SECOND-STRING SLIP

19 February 2014

Reserves lose at Wrexham...

THE SADDLERS' reserve team has slipped to a 3-0 defeat at Wrexham in The Final Third Development League West Division.

"We started the game poorly," admitted reserve team manager, Richard O'Kelly. "We were unable to get up to speed quick enough and we found ourselves two goals down in quick succession.

"They were competitive and pressed us and it took us a while during the opening period to get to grips with that.

"We improved in the second half and created a few more opportunities, although not as many as I would have liked.

"We were better as a team but our hosts were able to add a third goal with just over 20 minutes to go.

"It was a competitive encounter, which you want in these type of fixtures, but we were made to pay but not starting at the right tempo.

"It is something that I expect our youngsters to learn from for the next game."

WALSALL: Lewis, Heath (Christopherou), Hemmings, George, Preston, Featherstone (Kinsella), McQuilkin, Flanagan, Hewitt, Baxendale (Griffiths), Morris. Sub not used: Roberts.
