After a frantic first half, that Walsall had the better chances in, they eventually opened the scoring in the 53rd minute through Wes McDonald, who calmly curled an effort home from the edge of the box.

Despite seeing the better of the ball, the Saddlers were pegged back in the 69th minute when Dynel Simeu finished from close range following a corner.

The visitors scored all five of their penalties and while Walsall scored three, Cameron Norman’s saved effort meant the Saddlers missed out on an extra point.
