Match Stats: Stevenage 3 Walsall 1

Here are the Match Stats from the Saddlers' League Two meeting with Stevenage.
Walsall made the trip to the Lamex Stadium on Saturday afternoon as they took on promotion chasers Stevenage in their latest League Two outing of the season.

It was a meeting of two of League Two's struggling sides as third-placed Boro were looking to improve upon the form which had seen them win just once in their last seven league outings, whilst Michael Flynn's Saddlers had won just once since the new year began.

The match began in frantic fashion with both sides looking to take an early lead, however, it was the home side who would ultimately secure the advantage as Josh March got on the end of a Max Clark pass to slot the ball home.

Stevenage went on to double their lead seven minutes after scoring their first as Luke Norris completed a neat passing attack by putting the ball beyond Owen Evans and into the back of the Walsall net.

The Saddlers got themselves back into the game later in the half as Manny Monthé made the most of Dan Sweeney's missed header as he powered the ball home from close range.

Stevenage soon re-established their two-goal advantage with nine minutes of the first-half remaining as Josh Marsh smashed the ball home with an overhead kick.
