SAD­DLERS RISE TO THE OC­CA­SION

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE ONE -

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.
