Walsall striker Will Grigg converted a 29th-minute penalty after County goalkeeper Bartosz Bialkowski had fouled Jamie Paterson, but half-time substitute Yoann Arquin fired home a second-half equaliser for the visitors.

Kiwomya, pleased his side had responded after a disappointing first-half display, said: "At half-time I was disappointed even though it was a difficult pitch to play on. I didn't think we really penetrated.

"I emphasised that at half-time and in the second half we were so much better and there was a lot more urgency to our game, with people willing to run and go for the second ball."

Alan Judge spurned two golden scoring chances and Kiwomya said: "He's a top player, but he'll be disappointed that he hasn't hit the target because it changes he whole momentum of the game and I think we would have gone on to win quite easily."

Asked whether he hoped to become the full-time manager, Kiwomya replied: "I will just do the best I can.

"The players responded to me at half-time and if we had had 90 minutes of that I would have been happy. I thought in the second half we looked the team that wanted to win.

"The players were courageous and gave me everything in the second half."

think Liverpool should start trying alternative therapy now, given that Sturridge's hips and knees are apparently unfathomable to modern medicine. Voodoo, acupuncture, healing oils, rolling in the snow after a hot bath, its all got to be worth a go now.
