IN BRIEF | Walsall Ease to Victory Over Morecambe

The Saddlers' development side returned to Central League action on Wednesday afternoon as they travelled North to take on Morecambe.
John Ward's Walsall Development side were back in action on Wednesday afternoon as they travelled North to the Globe Arena to take on Morecambe in Group A (North) of the Central League.

Walsall XI - Ganley, Tonks, Fisher, Sangha, Leivesley, Kendrick, Shorrock, Butterfield, O'Sullivan, Hayles-Docherty, Cairns

Substitutes - Dawe, Mason, Brown, Friel, Massamba
Morecambe XI - Maher; Dutton-Kay, Brownsword, Twiname, Davis; Harrison, Dinsley; Jordan, Fairclough, Yawson; Hawley

The Saddlers had played just one development game heading into this afternoon's clash - a 3-0 defeat to Port Vale, which took place in early September, and were keen to get some points on the board as they took on the Shrimps.

Manager John Ward named a young squad following Tuesday evening's Checkatrade Trophy draw with M6 rivals Coventry City as first-team boss Jon Whitney sought to rest more of his fringe players ahead of Saturday afternoon's clash with League One leaders Shrewsbury Town.

Walsall would win the match by a fairly comfortable margin as goals from Jordon Sangha, Joe Cairns and Debert Massamba helped the Saddlers ease to victory by three-goals-to-one and earn their first points of the Central League campaign.
