The Saddlers set up to attack the fixture and showed glimpses of quality in the final third as they repelled Orient’s efforts.

At times, however, the game entered a lull as neither side could find that finishing touch.

But speaking after the fixture Dutton was pleased with his side and the valuable point gained.

Dutton said: “I thought it was there when Rory Holden burst down the wing and put one hell of a ball for Derick (Osei Yaw), I thought he was going to head it down and we’d be up and running and away, but it wasn’t to be.

“It’s hard to be disappointed with the guys when they’re absolutely running through brick walls for me. They’re giving absolutely everything to try and get that win.

“We’re ferocious in our attempt to get that win and our defending comes from the front, from Caolan Lavery and Josh Gordon.

“It’s then backed up through the midfield and defence.

“In terms of attitude, application and endeavor you can ask no more from these boys.

“The quality will come, you can see that with Rory Holden back on the pitch when everything started to brighten up and we looked a bit more fluid in the attacking third.

“We came with a point, leave with a point and on reflection it’s a very good point.”
