Interim manager Martin O’Connor was pleased to see his side stop the rot of consecutive losses as the Saddlers picked up a point against Southend United.
A last-minute equaliser from substitute Aramide Oteh earned Walsall their first point in seven games and O’Connor is now looking to build on the performance with more points against Monday’s opponents, Wycombe Wanderers.
“We will take the point that we got in the end,” said O’Connor. “It stops the rot in my opinion. We will go again on Monday.
“Southend were there for the taking in my eyes but they showed resilience and we gave them a lifeline with the poor goal that we conceded.
“They took that and they showed all of their experience and knowhow to calm the game down but we know it wasn’t the best performance.
“Before the game would we have taken a point? I think we will need a point somewhere down the line so we will take it and hopefully we can go and get three points on Monday against Wycombe.”
