Smith reflects on defeat at the hands of Coventry...
SADDLERS’ boss, Dean Smith, was proud of the performance that his team put in despite our 2-1 defeat at the hands of Coventry City.
“The performance was terrific,” he said. “We moved the ball well and put them under a lot of pressure.
“Unfortunately in the run that we are on, things are not going our way and key decisions went against us once more, particularly in the build-up to their opening goal when there was a foul on Febian Brandy in the build-up.
“I am disappointed for the players; they did ever so well out there and deserved to come away with something.
“It was nice to see Mal Benning get his first senior goal for the club. The movement was excellent and he was in the right place to apply a good finish.
“We’ve worked hard to get to where we are; we’re all about performances and if we keep performing as we are, the results will start to come again.
“Goals change games and that has been the case again tonight.
“We’ve not got the points that we have deserved in the last six games, but the lads have worked hard and kept that belief.
“It’s about us continuing to do the right things and now we look forward to Saturday’s game.”
