Notts County goalkeeper Roy Carroll felt that his side could have come away with more than a point from their goalless draw away to Walsall.
Carroll, who kept his 13th clean sheet of the season in the game at the Banks’s Stadium, admitted that his side just needed a little bit more in attack to have claimed what would have been an invaluable three points on Friday.
“They hit the post and I done a save in the second half, but they’re the only two chances they had in the whole game, so I think the lads defended really well, it’s just at the other end, we have to do more, finishing the chances we had in the first half,” Carroll said after the game.
“In the second half their keeper made a good save against Gary Jones, but I thought nil-nil was a little bit disappointing for us, but we know what we have to do now, we’ve got a lot of games coming up before the end of the season, seven games, we’re looking forward to it and we’re going to give everything we can.”
When it was suggested that the players had given their all in the match, Carroll agreed, adding: “Yeah they did. We have to do it again on Monday, we have to do it now for the rest of the season, we should have done it before.
“It’s very difficult the way things have happened, with Shaun leaving, but we’ve had a lot of changes during the season, a lot of players coming in, a lot of players leaving, you have to have a settled team for the whole season, that’s what I say.
“All the fans want from us is 100 percent on the pitch and to play for the badge and that’s what we’re here for and what we get paid for.”
