CENTRAL LEAGUE: Walsall 5 Morecambe 0

3:58 pm Tuesday, 23 January 2018  
Here is our match update from Tuesday afternoon's Central League clash between Walsall and Morecambe.
John Ward's Walsall Development squad were back in action on Tuesday afternoon as they played host to Morecambe in their latest Central League fixture of the season.

Ganley; Leivesley, Vann, Cockerill-Mollett, Sangha, Flanagan, Shorrock, Kouhyar, Hayles-Docherty, Candlin, Jackson

Substitutes: Butterfield, Peters, Little, Bates

The Saddlers arrived at this week's match in mid-table having won two of their five development games. They were most recently in action last week as they held league leaders Port Vale to a one-all draw at Vale Park. Tobias Hayles-Docherty's second-half strike securing a point for John Ward's side.

Opponents Morecambe had played just three Central League fixtures heading into this afternoon's match and were looking to give their campaign a kick-start as they visited Ray Hall Lane in search of their first win of the season.

The first goal of the game arrived within two minutes of the referee's opening whistle as Tobias Hayles-Docherty slotted the ball under young goalkeeper Niall Maher after latching on to a neat through-ball. A superb start for the Saddlers.

Walsall continued to create goal-scoring opportunities with first-team striker Simeon Jackson even hitting the back of the net ten minutes from the break, his effort being disallowed for an apparent foul on the goalkeeper.

Walsall were by far the better side and would go on to double their lead shortly before the break as Mitchel Candlin and Maziar Kouhyar combined to see the Afghanistan international cut inside and fire the ball beyond Maher.

Simeon Jackson added to the Saddlers' goals ten minutes into the second-half as he dispossessed a defender, rounded Maher and slotted the ball into the back of the net. A deserved goal for the forward.

Once again the Saddlers continued to create openings and were rewarded for their efforts after sixty-eight minutes as Reece Flanagan beat a couple of defenders, broke into the box and fired the ball into the bottom-right corner.

Ward's side continued to punish their opponents and added to their tally late in the second-half as substitute Luke Little, who had replaced Hayles-Docherty just minutes earlier, was on hand to fire home to make it five.
