SAD­DLERS THROW THEIR WEIGHT ABOUT

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE ONE -

FOR a top-of-the-ta­ble clash, this was fairly de­void of the qual­ity you might ex­pect.

But what qual­ity there was on show came from Wal­sall.

Judg­ing on this dis­play they have what it takes to mount a gen­uine pro­mo­tion chal­lenge.

They have the stingi­est de­fence in the di­vi­sion and al­ways look like nick­ing a goal or two at the other end, as they did here.

That’s the sort of ap­proach Bur­ton have plot­ted their route to the top of League One on.

Ev­ery game they have won has been by a sin­gle goal and there is only so long that could have con­tin­ued.

You sus­pected they might be found out at some stage and this proved to be the day.

And Jimmy Floyd Has­sel­baink will need to find more threat in the fi­nal third if the Brew­ers are to have a chance of back-to-back pro­mo­tions. But for now Wal­sall boss Dean Smith will not be wor­ry­ing him­self with any of that as his side set the pace.
