OLDHAM ATHLETIC 1 WALSALL 1 - MATCH REPORT

OLDHAM ATHLETIC 1 WALSALL 1 - MATCH REPORT

Following Tuesday night's away draw to Oldham Athletic Bescot Banter columnist Jack Hansford shares his Match Report;

Walsall traveled to Boundary Park to face Oldham in what was the second league game of the season. After a heavy defeat at the weekend, it was important the Saddlers aimed to bounce back.

In truth, there wasn't really much happening early on in the game, with both teams just wanting to get hold of the ball.

It was Oldham that were doing the better job though and the Latics looked much more comfortable in possession forcing Walsall to defend their goal on numerous occasions.

With Oldham beginning to exploit the space available on the edge of the box, it was Comoros international Youssouf M'Changama who accepted Walsall's invitation to shoot and his drive was seemingly well saved by 'keeper David Grof but somehow it bounced off the unfortunate stoppers head and into the back of the net.

HT: Oldham Athletic 1 Walsall 0

The second half began much like the first. However, it was much more end to end involving plenty of half chances for both teams. Oldham again seemed to look more threatening on the break, all because of Walsall's lack of ability to keep hold of the ball.

The turning point for Walsall came with the introduction of Bowerman and Williams who together with Hemmings seemed to link up nicely towards the end of the game.

The trio's play offered Walsall more of a threat going into the last ten minutes as the Saddlers pressed higher up the pitch. In the 79th minute it was George Bowerman who pounced on a back pass meant for Oldham 'keeper Alex Cisak and he calmly placed the ball into the corner of the net to equalise.

With three minutes time allowed shown on the board, it was inevitable Oldham would throw men forward to get the winner but the back four stood firm and managed to defend the point.

FT: Oldham Athletic 1 (
M'changama 36Walsall 1 (Bowerman 79')

Att: 3,496
Ref: M, Brown

I must admit it was difficult to see where a goal for us would come from tonight and it was only because of a mistake that drew us level. It was a game where both teams were trying desperately not to concede and on the night it was a poor game which included two poor goals in my opinion.

Roll on Saturday.

WALSALL 1 WEST BROMWICH ALBION 3 - MATCH REPORT

Following Walsall's pre-season friendly defeat to West Bromwich Albion, columnist Lee Hale shares his Match Report;

The second and last of our pre-season home friendlies, saw Premier League outfit West Bromwich Albion pay a visit to the Banks'.

Jordan Stewart started the game unexpectedly as it emerges he may be interested in a deal after all.

The Baggies began the better of the two sides with Grof being tested early doors, and it took just a quarter of an hour for them to break the deadlock through a Craig Dawson header.

Contrary to the difference in leagues between the two sides, I can happily say Walsall refused to roll over and in some ways, gave as good as they got.

The Saddlers carved a few half chances through the isolated Grigg, Cuvelier and the impressive new signing Ashley Hemmings.

Half Time: Walsall 0 West Bromwich Albion 1

The second half began with the statutory host of changes, as expected during these pre-season forays.

Again Walsall gave as good as they got with Hemmings looking dangerous throughout.

On the hour mark, Albion extended their lead.

Their attack afforded far too much room and it opened up nicely for youngster Saido Berahinho to make it 2-0.

Febian Brandy was then brought down in the box by a West Brom defender and the penalty was given, which Febian Brandy stepped up and took, but he saw his weak effort saved by Boaz Myhill.

West Brom extended their lead even further in the 86th minute through El Ghannasy.

The rowdy Albion crowd had barely finished celebrating, before us home fans finally had a little something to celebrate as youngster George Bowerman scored a consolation goal.

Result: Walsall 1 (Bowerman 88') West Bromwich Albion 3 (Dawson 16', Berahino 62', El Ghanassy 86')
(ATT: 4,736)
(REF: S, Martin)

A good run out for both teams no doubt, not a bad spectacle by pre-season standards, Walsall looked bright and well organised at times against a superior, Premier League side.

WALSALL 0 WOLVERHAMPTON WANDERERS 3 - MATCH REPORT

Following Saturday's Pre-Season friendly defeat to Wolverhampton Wanderers, guest Karl Robinson shares his Match Report;


Walsall and Wolves had a decent showing in the first half with both teams playing in the middle of the pitch for quite a while, however it was a goal from Frank Nouble which put Wolves in front. A substitution later with Adam Hammill coming on for the Wolves a second goal was scored and it didn't look good possession wise from Walsall. Second half kicked off and Wolves changed the team around a lot with what was seemingly their first team, Walsall made few changes to the line up and made subs during the game. However possession became worse for Walsall who were kicking the ball straight down to the Wolves defence most of the time, with one good chance from us in the second half, it was Kevin Doyle who sealed the win for Wolves.

For Walsall this was a chance for the team to get a chance to play against a side who had played in the Premier League last season and it was a chance for Dean Smith to make a decision about a few trialists as long as they had a good run against Wolves. With a match against Kidderminster Harriers on Tuesday and then on Saturday 4th August against Burton Albion, Dean Smith needs to make a decision if he is to sign any more of the trialsts. However as a few fans were saying is we should be playing our final squad for the season against Burton because after that West Brom is our final chance to get a team together before the start of the season.


A few things i heard from fans though were we should at least make quite some more signings as we need a good player to work alongside Andy Butler. We need a good left back, a good midfielder and we are in need of a stricker that is at least over five foot. However i believe one thing that is key for the team is someone with experience of playing in league one or higher.



RESULT: Walsall 0 Wolverhampton Wanderers 3 (Nouble 23', Hammill 38', Doyle 68') (HT: 0-2) (ATT: 4,219) (REF: O, Langford)

Connor played a part in Saturday's 0-3 friendly defeat to Wolverhampton Wanderers and has penned a deal until the end of the season.
