It seemed that the visitors brought their A-game as they took the lead in the first half but the run of play made it seem unfair that the score wasn’t level.
It didn’t take long for Aldridge & Walsall to score in the second half with goal scorer Haider bringing a boost to the side’s game. The further it went into the match, the more likely it seemed that they would score again however it was the visitors that struck an unlikely goal that proved a need for Aldridge & Walsall to maintain high levels of effort in order to get the score line that seemed deserved given how the game was going.
Aldridge & Walsall kept battling and in the end, they managed to convert their chances and scored to bring the score to 2-2 through Dave Foster much to the joy of the team.

Thanks to the hard work form the defence and midfield, the visitors had limited chances throughout the game and the score ended 3-2.
Both teams battled hard but in the end, the skill levels were shown through the score line which was to be expected before the game. The match proved to be a lesson to both sides in which hard work can change the course of a game even when a side is underestimated.
