FREE-SCORING DUO FAIL TO SHINE
TWO of the top scoring sides in the league – so it was always going to be a scrappy 1-0 wasn’t it?
That won’t worry Bury whose defensive display was at complete odds with their goals against tally beforehand.
If they can maintain that meanness at the back, they should have no trouble staying in League One with the goal threat they have in Leon Clarke and Tom Pope up front.
For Walsall, meanwhile, it was just one of those days. And as one of their players, Andy Taylor admitted after, they will be looking forward to a midweek break after having had two games a week thus far.
But after their flying start, other teams will come and shut up shop so they must find a way of moving those parked buses.
