The Saddlers sat third in the table ahead of kick-off, and hadn't been in action for several weeks with their most recent outing taking place in late January in a match which saw m comfortably defeat Morecambe as Tobias Hayles-Docherty, Maz Kouhyar, Simeon Jackson, Reece Flanagan and Luke Little all hit the back of the net.

Bradford City sat second in the table ahead of kick-off, having won four of their six games. Their most recent outing saw them defeat Hartlepool United by three-goals-to-nil as Joel Grodowski, Kai Br√ľnker and Matthew Birchall all found the back of the net.

Ward's Walsall, who named former QPR defender Jeremy Arthur among their starting XI, went close to opening the scoring on a few occasions in the first-half. Reece Flanagan and Maziar Kouhyar both had chances, while winger Tobias Hayles-Docherty cut inside from the right and rattled the crossbar as his side forced the visiting Bantams into a defensive formation.

Despite the Saddlers' dominance the match reached the halfway point with no goals scored, no doubt something that the City manager would've been keen to point out as he looked to get his side into the action.

Walsall continued to look for the game's opening goal and went close through defender Callum Cockerill-Mollett as the left-back forced the City 'keeper into a save following Hayles-Docherty's neat run.

Saddlers stopper Brandon Ganley didn't have a huge amount to do but had to be alert as Joel Grodowski fired in a free-kick just past the hour mark. The young stopper doing well to keep his sheet clean.

Walsall's Cameron Peters had a shot on goal in the closing stages but he couldn't open the scoring as the spoils were shared, the match ending goalless.
