FOREST GREEN boss Mark Cooper lamented a late Walsall cameo as his side settled for a point.

Darrell Clarke’s Saddlers snatched an 86th-minute leveller through inspirational substitute James Hardy who cancelled out a Joseph Mills first-half penalty.

“I don’t think we really deserved to win, but when you get to that late stage of the game you need to see the game out,” admitted Cooper.

“We didn’t play particularly well today, but we dug in and showed a bit of character.”
