Leahy: we can't dwell on Luton loss

22 October 2018

Luke Leahy says the Saddlers can’t afford to dwell on the loss at Luton.

It was the first time Dean Keates’ side had tasted defeat on their travels this season as the Hatters walked away with all three points following a 2-0 victory at Kenilworth Road.

The 25-year-old admitted the Saddlers’ performance wasn’t good enough and is looking for a return to winning ways at Southend tomorrow night.

“From the warm-up it was flat,” said Leahy. “It just wasn’t good enough.

“We weren’t good enough in every area of the game, from the simple stuff to the pressing and the long balls.

“Everything wasn’t good enough.

“We have taken a big loss here and the best thing we can take out of this is that we have a game on Tuesday to put things right.

“Luton were better than us all over the pitch. They were better at us at the basics.

“They put more of a shift in, they made that extra run when we didn’t and when we watch it back there will be a few words said.

“We can’t dwell on this defeat too much because we have a game on Tuesday and we need to put it right.

“Me and Dobbo will take full responsibility for the poor set-pieces. When we were attacking, the boys were making the runs but we were hitting the first man.

“We worked a lot on corners last week, believe it or not.

“We know it wasn’t good enough but it’s all about putting it right on Tuesday.”
