Clarke: It was two points dropped

16 December 2019

Saddlers boss Darrell Clarke felt as though it was two points dropped against Macclesfield Town on Saturday afternoon as his side had to settle for a draw.

Wes McDonald scored for the second home game in a row to secure a point for Clarke’s men but with 24 shots at the Town goal, the manager was disappointed his side didn’t pick up all three points.

And Clarke, who turns 42 today, felt as though the slow start didn’t help his team as they went in search of their third win on the bounce.

“It feels that way to be honest with you, it feels like it’s two points dropped,” said Clarke.

“I thought it was a disastrous start for us which then gets the place edgy, which you’d expect. We didn’t really recover from the slow start for a while to be honest. 

“For me, it was an average performance, a frustrating performance but a game we should of won. 

“If we were to play that game again, we might win it three or four one.

“As disappointed as we were with the result, because at times we were poor, the fact of the matter is that sometimes it is two points dropped.

“Is it cutting edge that was missing or can we give a bit of credit to their ‘keeper?

“I think he’s pulled off three or four world class saves on the day.

“We were sloppy in possession and a couple of players had an absolute nightmare if I am being honest.

“You can analyse it until the cows come home but the fact of the matter is that we should win the game. 

“The stats will tell you that, so it’s two points dropped.”
