More consistency needed - Weston

Walsall defender Rhys Weston says the side need more consistency than produced in their recent performances.The Saddlers recovered from 2-0 down on Saturday to draw with Leyton Orient, having come back from the same score to win 3-2 at Wycombe.

Weston told BBC WM: "The manager said what he had to say at half-time, and we implemented that pretty well in the second-half."

"It's just a bit frustrating we didn't start like that from the outset."

Weston said manager Chris Hutchings and his assistant Martin O'Connor deserve credit for inspiring the fightback against Leyton Orient.

"Obviously the coaching staff play their part. We know that to be 2-0 down at half-time and having played the way we had is not acceptable.

"Management are well within their rights to tear strips off us. The gaffer's got his way of dealing with people, as has Martin O'Connor, so we listen to their words of encouragement and advice, and we take them on board."

Weston added: "We came out all guns blazing in the second-half against Orient, we couldn't have asked for a better start to the second period.

"I think professional pride kicks in then, you can't afford to play as badly as we did in the first-half for 90 minutes otherwise you end up getting tanked."
