Scores of supporters staged a sit-in protest with one ejected for a 'freedom of speech' banner as Walsall FC fans vented their frustration at the club's ownership.

Around 80 fans stayed inside the Banks's Stadium after the final whistle on Saturday to show their opposition to the running of the club.

They gathered in the Floors 2 Go stand for just under half-an-hour after the match against MK Dons in a protest at the lack of investment by chairman Jeff Bonser.

One supporter had tried to put up the 'freedom of speech' banner but was removed by stewards.

Stadium manager and safety officer Dave Storr said it had been a peaceful protest and people had left by their own accord by 5.20pm.

He added fans had behaved responsibly with no-one arrested.
