Flynn feels draw at Carlisle was a fair result

14 November 2022

Walsall Head Coach Michael Flynn felt his team deserved to take home a point against Carlisle United but admitted both teams lacked quality in the final third.

The Saddlers stretched their unbeaten run to five in all competitions with a goalless draw at Brunton Park which also made it three consecutive clean sheets.

Flynn feels his team are getting closer to reaching their full potential and while he has called for improvement in the final third, he was satisfied with the point gained.

“It was deserved,” Flynn said.

“No team was good enough and it was poor from both teams.

“A lot of loose passes, decision making in the final third but it’s a tough place to come.

"They’re a good team, they’ve got a great home record and I’ll take a point away from home all day long, especially after a long journey like this.

“The quality in the final third wasn’t what both teams can do.

“We’ve come away, not played great, got a point away from home and a clean sheet which is good and we’re almost a very good team.”

317 Saddlers fans made the long trip up the M6 to Brunton Park and Flynn was grateful for their support.

“It wasn’t the best game for them, I’m not going to dress it up and I just wish we got a goal for them,” he commented.

“I couldn’t care whether it was last minute or first minute, when they make that effort to come this far, it’s very much appreciated, not just from me but the players as well.”

One player who didn’t travel was Liam Kinsella and the Saddlers Head Coach explained the reason behind his absence.

“He’s got a knock,” Flynn confirmed.

“We thought he was going to be alright; he hates missing games.

“We sometimes think he’s made of rubber; he bounces back but Liam will be fine for next week.”
