Walsall boss Dean Smith was disappointed by the way his team handled Notts County striker Lee Hughes in their 2-1 defeat on Saturday.
The Saddlers boss was also frustrated by the manner in which they lost the game, branding his side 'naive'.
He said: "It was disappointing as I don't think we handled Lee Hughes well all afternoon. He's played at the top level and you could see why with his finish in the first half.
"I thought in the second half we got on the front foot again and got the goal but our naivety cost us.
"We had a throw in the corner and players went up but we didn't have a long throw as Richard Taundry has a bad shoulder and they've broken away and scored. I'm disappointed we've been so naive."
