Megson: We need to act quickly to sort out some issues

Gary Megson says he has some issues to sort out after Wednesday threw away another three points, allowing struggling Walsall to score twice in injury time on Boxing Day in a 2-1 defeat.

Ryan Lowe gave us the lead on the hour with a cracking header from Chris Lines’ great run and cross.

However, Claude Gnapka’s 20-yarder took a huge deflection to equalise at the start of five added minutes and then, with a minute remaining, Miguel Liera misjudged a cross into the box and Emmanuele Smith caught Reda Johnson napping at the far post to fire home.

Megson said afterwards: “There are two or three individual issues that are starting to have an impact on us as a football team and they need sorting out quickly.”

He also hinted that he will act swiftly to secure the signing of keeper Stephen Bywater from Derby.
