Central League Cup: Walsall 0 Shrewsbury Town 3

Walsall's development team were back in action on Tuesday afternoon as they played host to Shrewsbury Town in their second of three Central League Cup group games.
The Saddlers, who are managed by John Ward, began the South Central campaign with a 2-1 away win over Burton Albion, as goals from Maziar Kouhyar and Dan Vann seeing the second-string home to victory.

Dunn; Little, Johnson, Vann, Cockerill-Mollett; Kouhyar, Kinsella, Bates, K.Flanagan; Parker, Gordon

Substitutes: Walker; McSkeane, Brown, Coogan, Perry

Arnold; Sears, Sadler, Kennedy, Loft, Eisa, Barnett, Gillead, John-Lewis, Amadi-Holloway, Gnahoua

Substitutes: Atkinson; Mwandwe, Taylor, Ward, Davies, Rowland

The Saddlers named a mixed side for their clash with the Shrews, with the likes of Luke Little, Alfie Bates, and Kian Flanagan joining Maz Kouhyar, Liam Kinsella, and Josh Gordon in action.

The Shrews, who also won their opening group game - defeating Bristol Rovers by three-goals-to-nil - named a strong side for this afternoon's clash as they look to maintain fitness ahead of next weekend's round of League One games.

Today's match, which took place at the Birmingham County FA's Headquarters, which are on Ray Hall Lane in Great Barr, was a close-run affair with the first-half producing no goals.

The same couldn't be said for the second forty-five as Shrews striker Lenell John-Lewis put the ball past Saddlers' stopper Chris Dunn just a couple of minutes into the second-half.

The match didn't get any closer from then on as the visitors went on to double their lead twenty-minutes into the second-half, Aaron Amadi-Holloway's effort hitting the back of the net, before John-Lewis grabbed his second and the Shrews' third seventeen minutes from time.

A disappointing afternoon for Walsall, whose final South Central clash against Bristol Rovers is currently scheduled to take place at the home of Yate Town on Tuesday, 11th December.
