Paul Jenkins rates the Walsall players following their FA Cup comeback

Hayden White
Hayden White

OWEN EVANS

Produced a good save in the first half, couldn’t do much about a neat finish for Carlisle’s goal, generally sound.

Dependable 7

HAYDEN WHITE

Made his 100th Walsall appearance and didn’t do much wrong, maybe could have dealt with cross into box for the Carlisle goal but wasn’t the only one.

Safe 7

LIAM GORDON

Taken off in second half after he had produced some good moments and dangerous crosses and contributed well.

Steady 7

DONERVON DANIELS

Unlucky not to score in the first half,produced some good forward running and good tracking back. Full of energy

Led by example 8

MANNY MONTHE

Playing with a tendinitis problem, gave his all and stayed on for 90 minutes.

Solid 8

LIAM KINSELLA

Back in the starting line up, played well in midfield against a good Carlisle side and held the ball up well.

Steady 7

TOM KNOWLES

Created plenty of chances even in the first half when Walsall were often on the defensive and good support work up front

Full of running 8

BRANDON COMLEY

Not one of his best games although didn’t make any mistakes, was sacrificed in the second half as Walsall looked to make changes

Quiet 6

JACOB MADDOX

Covered plenty of ground as usual and distributed the ball well and always looked a threat up front.

Very Busy 7

ISAAC HUTCHINSON

Set up the winner and just reward for his creativity – probably deserved a goal himself

Creative 8

DANNY JOHNSON

Didn’t see much of the ball in the first half but still unlucky not to score, had to work hard for his few chances

Persistent 8
