WHITNEY: NOT GOOD ENOUGH

23 April 2016

Walsall beaten at Bradford...

A passionate Jon Whitney admitted Walsall were “not good enough” in their 4-0 defeat at Bradford.

After a goalless first half, the impressive Bantams ran riot after the break with Filipe Morais’ header and James Hanson’s 16-minute hat-trick securing a resounding win.

“It was not good enough,” said Whitney afterwards. “I am not going to stand here and insult the fans’ intelligence.

“I have asked the players to have a look at themselves. I’m not going to stand there and lose my head like the old Jon would have done years back.

“I want to look at it logically. I want the players to go home and ask themselves, did you really, really do enough to challenge Bradford?

“Did you do enough to want to get promoted to the Championship? Were you willing to put your head on the line because sometimes that is what you have to do in football.

“It’s not always about playing pretty football. We have to match them physically and we didn’t do it second half and then we lose heavily.

“We capitulated after the first goal which I’m not happy about.”
