CK: It Should Have Been Three

18 August 2013

First team manager Chris Kiwomya felt that his team should have walked away from the Banks's Stadium with all three points in the bag.

Notts had to settle for a share of the spoils with in-form Walsall, following an exciting 90 minutes that ended in a 1-1 draw.

Romaine Sawyers had given the Saddlers a one-goal lead early into the second half but Yoann Arquin came off the bench to head the Magpies level in the 74th minute. 

The Frenchman had the ball in the net again in the dying stages but finish was ruled out by a controversial offside decision. 

"There was the penalty appeal and the offside and we just need one or two things to go our way," said Kiwomya. 

"Overall I'm pleased and I thought we were the better team in the second half.

"We made some substitutions and I thought David Bell was outstanding, Yoann Arquin came on and made a major difference, and you could see that they were making changes to keep in it.

"We were on the front foot and an attacking team, which is what I want us to be.

"It was good that we played like that in front of the County fans at that end - that gave them a lot of hope and they were making a lot of noise.

"We were exciting in the second half and I thought that once we got to grips with them and made the changes there was only one team going to win it.

"They were playing on the counter attack and had a couple of chances, but I'm just waiting for us to have that bit of luck."
