Gordon: we're disappointed despite picking up a point

26 November 2018

Saddlers striker Josh Gordon conceded that the players were gutted with Saturday’s result despite picking up a point against second placed Sunderland.

A first league goal from himself and a rocket from Josh Ginnelly had put the Saddlers 2-0 to the good but goals from Aiden McGeady and Lynden Gooch earned the visitors the draw.

Although it’s another point on the board, Gordon felt as though the team deserved all three points in the end.

“It was a good atmosphere,” said Gordon. “They brought a lot of fans down but we are gutted with the result.

“They started quite bright but I thought we dealt with it well.

“They had a lot of corners and we’ve conceded a few from corners lately but we nullified that threat.

“After that 10 minute spell we had a bit of belief. We got into the game and started doing what we do best.

“We were getting the ball wide and breaking the lines. We came in at half-time and we knew we could do something.

“We started brightly at the start of the second half and we got our goal but ultimately it didn’t go our way at the end.”

The 23-year-old opened the scoring just 39 seconds after the restart, and he is now hoping he can kick on in the league and keep adding to his goal tally, which stands at three goals in all competitions.

“Any game, any time I can get a goal it’s good,” he continued. “But to get a goal against a side like Sunderland, I’m happy with but with the way the result has gone – it kind of takes the happiness out of it a little bit because we deserved to get the three points.

“Hopefully I can keep going now and get more goals.

“I always know when the ball comes into Cooky he is going to get hold of it and either flick it on or at least get something on it.

“It was a good ball to Devs, it was a bit like against Burton when Dev’s was down the wing.

“I knew he was going to go near post so I checked my run and was happy to get a goal.”
