Kinsella: a frustrating loss against Charlton

3 January 2019

Saddlers midfielder Liam Kinsella admits the team were left frustrated on New Year’s Day following their defeat to Charlton Athletic.

Two goals in the first nine minutes from Karlan Grant and Lyle Taylor were enough to give the home side all three points, despite the best efforts of Dean Keates’ side in the second half.

Josh Gordon had a chance cleared off the line just before half-time and leading scorer Andy Cook notched his 11th goal of the season shortly after the break with a brilliant turn and finish.

And Kinsella felt the second-half performance warranted at least a point.

“It’s really really frustrating,” said the 22-year-old.

“We need to try and cut out the mistakes and hopefully that can put us in good shape rather than having to come from two goals down to try and get something from the game.

“We put the two goals behind us and we came out in the second half and put in a really good performance and I felt we could have nicked something.

“We matched them and it’s frustrating we couldn’t get something out of the game.

“We should have had three points against both Luton and Peterborough. It’s frustrating when you’re putting in a good shift and performance but you’re coming away with nothing, it hurts.

“It was a good second half but we are frustrated.

“Going in at half-time two goals down, we have to try and then get something out of the game and it’s tough. It was a good performance in the second half and we should have got something.

“We are putting in some good performances but we are coming away with nothing.

“We need to turn the good performances into good results and we can start going up the table again rather than looking down.”
