Walsall made another draw-their third consecutive in eight days-at Wycombe Wanderers in a drab game but were happy to claim a point when it looked as if another defeat was on the cards. The first half at Adams Park was almost devoid of any worthwhile football which demonstrated just why both clubs are in the bottom six.

On 12 minutes Saddlers striker Will Grigg got in a shot from some distance which took a deflection and went out for a corner. On 38 minutes Jimmy Walker was tested by Stuart Bevan but teh veteran keeper hung on.

Five minutes into the restart the hosts took the lead when Walsall's defence switched off and Ben Strevens hit home past Walker. It could have been worse just three minutes later when captain Andy Butler made a great clearance on the line.

Walsall's play started to get a lot brighter when substitutes Alex Nicholls and Jamie Patterson were introduced mid way through the second half and a terrible backpass by Strevens had no chance of finding the home keeper and Nicholls rounded him and tapped into the unguarded net. Walsall hung on for the last nine minutes but it was another poor show and Saddlers need to improve.
