Saddlers boss Darrell Clarke was left feeling ‘upset’ following Saturday’s defeat to Swindon Town as he felt his team’s performance warranted a better result from the game.
The game was largely dominated by Clarke’s side and but for a superb save from the Town keeper in the last minute of injury time, a point would have been earned.
But unfortunately for the Saddlers, the loss at the weekend meant it now means that we’re without a win in six games but Clarke believes performances are on the turn.
“I am upset,” said Clarke. “I think my team has given me everything in the game.
“We deserved something out of the game and I am upset. I’m a passionate guy, it’s killing me that we aren’t getting the results we deserve.
“I’m a hard working football manager that doesn’t win for himself, I try and win for the fans, the board and the players.
“We’re falling short at the moment so I am going to be upset and angry, but we have to keep going.
“I saw a performance against Swindon that warranted more out of the game but we didn’t and it’s a results business.
“It’s another defeat and we have to take that pill. We have got to re-energise the group again as it’s a very flat changing room.
“I don’t think they’re not giving their all, the stats back it up, the fact of the matter is we need to keep working hard.
“We’re very disappointed after three competitive months of the season. Only hard work will get you out the other end.”
