Match Stats: Walsall 2 Bolton Wanderers 1

Here are the Match Stats from Walsall's League Two clash with Bolton Wanderers.
Darrell Clarke and his Saddlers arrived at the match in search of their second win on the bounce after they defeated the previously in-form Tranmere Rovers by three-goals-to-one last weekend.

The Saddlers started the game well, with Wes McDonald seeing an effort clear the bar in the early stages, but were unable to produce the first goal of the game as Wanderers striker Eoin Doyle did the honours thirteen minutes into the first-half.

Thankfully for the Reds they were able to grab the second goal of the game as Elijah Adebayo slammed home just a minute before the break, his seventh goal of the season levelling the scores ahead of the second forty-five.

With the momentum of last weekend's triumph over Tranmere behind them the Saddlers went on to take the lead twelve minutes into the second-half as Rory Holden unleashed a superb strike into the back of the net following Wes McDonald's worked free-kick.
