Saddlers claim important triumph

Two second half goals enabled Walsall to leapfrog fellow strugglers Wycombe with a 2-0 win at the Banks's Stadium

Kevan Hurst put the Saddlers ahead with a blistering 63rd minute drive - his third goal of the season - and George Bowerman added the second from a pass by fellow substitute Jon Macken.

Walsall could even afford a penalty miss - Alex Nicholls failing from the spot for the second time in a week as Chairboys goalkeeper Nikki Bull got down to smother his low effort.

The Saddlers easily contained a Wycombe side for whom Matty Whichelow shot wide in the first half and Stuart Beavon headed over.

Walsall's star was 20-year-old Jamie Patterson, who went close on several occasions, as Wycombe were condemned to a third successive defeat.
