Flynn 'proud' of his sides second half performance against Northampton Town

2 March 2022

Saddlers Head Coach Michael Flynn was delighted with his sides second half performance against Northampton Town on Tuesday night as Conor Wilkinson scored an equaliser to secure a point at Sixfields.

Flynn’s side found themselves a goal down after just four minutes when Mitch Pinnock struck from the edge of the area but Wilkinson found the net early on in the second half and the Head Coach feels like his side could have taken more from the game.

“It should have been more after our second half performance,” said Flynn.

“It was the old cliche, a game of two halves. I thought we were really poor in the first half, we were sloppy in possession, we turned down opportunities to shoot or cross and we created ourselves a lot of problems in the first half.

“We know what Northampton bring, they are a strong team, they’re organised, fit and they’re at the top of the table because they’re good at their jobs.

“We knew what to expect but in the second half we flipped the game on its head and we should have scored three, maybe even four goals in the second half, I thought we were that good.

"We worked on a corner routine, Conor should score another one, George had that headed chance, there’s multiple crosses and shots that if we’re on the move, they’re tap-ins.

“I thought they were absolutely superb in the second half.

“I told the players at half time that we needed to be better in no uncertain terms.

“They held their hands up, they’re an honest group and they made me really proud in that second half because they reacted in the right way, they stuck together and we played some really good stuff.”
