SECOND-STRING SLIP

25 February 2015

Reserves fall to late goal...

THE SADDLERS' second-string fell to a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Shrewsbury Town in the Final Third Development League Cup.

"We started the game brightly, a lot like last week," said reserve team manager, Richard O'Kelly. "We deservedly went a goal up through Levi Rowley and could have added to our lead.

"As the game went on we couldn't push home our advantage and our hosts managed to get back onto level terms.

"The second half was evenly-matched with both sides creating chances. Shrewsbury went on to nick it late on with a goal from a free-kick.

"Not making excuses, but our lads looked tired. These things happen at this stage of the season but the important thing is how you manage the situation and the work ethic cannot be faulted."

WALSALL: MacGillivray, J. Smith, Probert, Atkinson, Preston, Heath, Shakespeare (Delaney), Flanagan, Bakayoko, Murphy, L. Rowley. Subs: K. Rowley, R. Reid, K. Roberts, L. Roberts.
