Woodland Green held by Walsall

A goalkeeping masterclass from Walsall’s Liam Roberts denied Forest Eco-friendly a victory in a pulsating 1-1 draw.

Walsall proceeded to go ahead after 14 minutes through their own first meaningful attack as Bristol City loanee George Nurse arrowed over a cross for Caolan Lavery to nod beyond the uncovered Luke McGee.

Rovers bossed possession but squandered an array of first-half opportunities – Aaron Collins inducing a save from Roberts and Jamille Matt scuffing broad with only the keeper to defeat.

Matt had a charges appeal turned down when falling within the box under the challenge of Hayden White as he prepared to meet a good inviting Nicky Cadden cross.

Ebou Adams spurned the golden opportunity to draw parity simply five minutes after the resumption but this individual inexplicably fizzed wide with just Roberts to beat.

Roberts kept Walsall’s lead unchanged when superbly touching over Collins’ howitzer from the edge of the container.

Rovers drew degree after 61 minutes, with Collins picking out Matt for a cool close-range finish. Matt was denied another with 15 minutes to go as Roberts scooped the ball off the range.

Roberts saved the afternoon again for the Saddlers – clawing away another powerful Collins hard work.
