Match Stats: Walsall 2 Salford City 3

Here are the Match Stats from the Saddlers' League Two meeting with Salford City.
Walsall were back in action on Saturday afternoon as they played host to Salford City at Poundland Bescot Stadium.

Led by Interim boss Mat Sadler following the recent departure of Michael Flynn, the Saddlers were looking for a return to winning ways as they looked to end yet another run of draws and losses.

The visitors were fastest out of the traps as they opened the scoring with just six-minutes on the clock as Callum Hendry got on the end of a Liam Shephard cross and headed the ball past Owen Evans and into the back of the net.

Walsall got themselves back on level terms in the second half as Jamille Matt bagged his second goal in a Saddlers shirt after he got on the end of a Liam Gordon ball to send a stooping header home.

Sadly for the Saddlers, and despite their visitors being reduced to ten men after Louie Barry was sent off, they weren't able to retain their share of the spoils as substitute Conor McAleny put his side ahead with 88 minutes on the clock.

The goals didn't end there, however, as Conro Wilkinson came off the bench to put the Saddlers back on level terms only for fellow substitute Matty Lund to restore the visitors' lead just moments later.
