Micky Mellon On Defeat To Walsall

1 December 2015

Manager Disappointed Following Home Loss

"We've got to do better around our own 18-yard box but it's taken a deflection and gone in."

"But Larnell complained five minutes before the end of the first half that he'd tweaked his groin.

"I thought in the first half there was good spells for both teams.

"To score when we did and the type of goal we did, it came at a really good time.

"It's a great little move for the goal," said Micky.

The winger was then taken off at half-time with a groin problem.

Cole grabbed the opener by finishing low under the goalkeeper after being slid in by Scott Vernon.
"I think you would have to say it's a major turning point when it's one each.

"He's disappointed himself because you've got to show more experience than that.

"He hasn't touched him but he gave the referee a decision to make and unfortunately it hasn't gone our way."
Micky said:

The midfielder will be suspended for the Grimsby Town FA Cup clash as a result having picked up his fifth yellow of the season.

Black was sent off for a second yellow card for a challenge on Walsall's Downing.

"We're disappointed to lose a local derby, especially after getting the first goal," said Micky.

The Saddlers capitalised on the extra man with goals from Paul Downing and a breakaway goal from Kieron Morris in injury time.

Despite taking the lead through a Larnell Cole strike on the night, Walsall levelled through Milan Lalkovic and Ian Black was sent off with less than 20 minutes to go for a second yellow card.

Manager Micky Mellon was disappointed following Shrewsbury Town's 3-1 defeat at home to Walsall on Tuesday night.
