Michael Flynn reflects on Tranmere defeat

26 September 2022

Walsall Head Coach Michael Flynn bemoaned a lack of quality in what he felt was a scrappy encounter with Tranmere Rovers on Saturday.

The game looked to be heading for a goalless draw but Elliott Nevitt netted with virtually the last kick of the game as the visitors snatched three points.

Flynn was left frustrated with his side’s lack of conviction in both boxes and admitted the match was below par as a spectacle. 

“It was a poor game in terms of quality, the effort was there from both sides,” Flynn said.

“We’ve been undone by our inability to score when we’ve got a chance and stop them scoring at the other end. I know that’s quite obvious but I’ve said for a while now that both boxes are not good enough.

“It was a scrappy game, there wasn’t much quality. It was maybe a bit tentative from us, solid from them without taking many risks, basically cancelling each other out which is frustrating, especially when we’re at home.”

Walsall’s frustrating run continues but Flynn is keen to keep working hard on building the team and has urged everyone to stick together.

“Keep the faith,” Flynn commented.

“I know what I’m doing and we will get this club to where it belongs to be.

“I know Trivela feel the same and Leigh. It’s not good enough at the minute, we know that but Rome wasn’t built in a day because we have got a team to build here.

“I know what I’m doing, I’m an experienced manager at this level and it’s a building job. I’m here to help build the club and I’ll continue because I know what to do.”
