SADDLERS RISE TO THE OCCASION
WALSALL must wish topof-the-table clashes came every week.
Three times this season Walsall have faced the cream of League One at home – and three times they have triumphed, this win helping them back to the summit in style.
And the victory showed another side to the Saddlers. After comfortably outplaying Coventry and Burton, this time they had to battle back from behind to clinch the points.
The Gills will lament letting a two-goal lead slip but they must not beat themselves up, as they showed more than enough to suggest they will last the course.
Against many sides in the division, Gillingham might have won by a landslide and their attacking talent would be a threat to anyone.
