Possibly should have grabbed Iandolo’s first shot for the goal instead of parrying it to give him a second bite of the cherry. Made two great saves though.
Formed part of a solid Saddlers defence, which stopped Swindon creating more chances that some of their dangerous forwards could have converted.
Again snuffed out mainly Swindon’s attacks and had to be on his guard with those, particularly in the first half.
Got forward well as his manager likes, but was always available to cut out any threat to the Saddlers’ goal
Good example 8
Scored his first Saddlers’ goal at a crucial period of the game – it wasn’t pretty, but he will remember it for a long time.
Had a quiet game, but helped break up Carlisle attacks and launched some for the Saddlers.
Created plenty of chances, including some for himself when nobody was available. Stood out for Walsall in a generally poor first half and unlucky not to be credited with the goal.
Fairly quiet, but didn’t do much wrong. Perhaps needs some more game time after missing through games called off and injury.
Not one of his best games, tried to get things going but passes went astray. Looked ring rusty.
Dependable and a help to the forwards, but was well shackled by the Swindon defence.

Had the best chance up to the Saddlers’ goal in the first half and should have scored in the second, but got in the right positions.
Conor Wilkinson (for Gordon, 70) Outstanding the time he was on the pitch 8; Jacob Maddox (for Hutchinson, 70) Boss said he was unlucky not to start and contributed well when he came on 8; Douglas James-Taylor (for Johnson, 85) Didn’t have much time to influence the game but got forward well 7.
