Jackson Smith 6

A rare start for the keeper, who could have potentially done better with the second goal as he was beaten at his near post.

Joe Foulkes 6

A difficult night for Foulkes. Some good bits and tried to get Walsall moving going forward but at times conceded possession cheaply.

Rollin Menayese 6

A first competitive start since April 2022 for the defender, who did well. First two goals were distance strikes, although questioned could be asked of the back line for the third.

David Okagbue 6

In certain areas he was growing with every game. Looked good in possession although will have been disappointed with the manner of the third goal.

Oisin McEntee 5
