The Super Saddlers have got into a habit. A very good habit. A winning habit! Once again last Saturday Walsall were victorious-this time at home to Bournemouth who fell to the sword as a 3-1 win was recorded. Bournemouth themselves had been on a long unbeaten run but were no measure for Walsall who's record is now six wins in seven games. The game passed a 9.30am morning pitch inspection but disappointingly just 3,173 turned up for such an entertaining game. Former England goalkeeper David James was between the sticks but at times looked far from comfortable. Sam Mantom set Walsall on their way with a goal before James pulled down Will Grigg in the box and rightfully grabed the ball and converted his spot kick. Bournemouth showed thie attacking play before half time when they hit the bar.
Early in the second half Bournemouth got back in the game when they pulled a goal back from Pitman but instead of Walsall going into their shells The Saddlers kept focussed. Jamie Paterson hit a post before the visitors hit the bar again again. Febian Brandy, who was already on a yellow card, got himself sent off when he attempted to reach the ball fouled O'Kane. Despite only having ten men it was Walsall who got what turned out to be the winner when Will Grigg converted a second penalty for a bizzare handball. So another 3-1 win for those Super Saddlers.
