Dean Keates was disappointed to see his side knocked out of the Carabao Cup by League Two Macclesfield Town.
The Saddlers came from two goals down to lead 3-2, only to concede a stoppage-time equaliser and then lose 3-1 on penalties, with Town keeper Kieran O’Hara saving three spot-kicks.
Although bitterly disappointed, Keates was keen to take the positives from the game.
“We are disappointed that we have been knocked out of the cup,” he said.
“It is a lottery when it goes to penalties – a bit of a dual between a goalkeeper and whoever is taking a penalty.
“Their goalkeeper has come out on top and unfortunately for us we are on the receiving end but there are a lot of positives to take out of the game.
“To get back into a winning position having been 2-0 down is positive for us and we had a lot of possession and dominated for long periods of the game.
“We could have had better decisions in the final third and a better choice of shot selection.
“We could have also had a better choice of cross because our final ball wasn’t up to scratch.
“But we should have had a free-kick before their equaliser.”
