It was wet and windy but the sun shone for us as we beat a team up the top who is fancied to do well.

Walsall did have chances and hit the woodwork twice and Jordan Archer was producing his trademark double saves to keep Walsall at bay.
With Mark Beevers suspended Sid Nelson started this game which is his first for a while and he did not disappoint as he got stuck in, we defended stoutly and it stopped Walsall from attempting to claim top spot and it also made sure we retained our play-off spot. Our last five games have produced 13 points which is title winning form but there is a gap to close of nine points to catch Walsall in second spot and a thirteen point gap to catch Burton Albion in top spot. It should be interesting and it starts again at Rochdale next Saturday which is annoying because I fancied a Tuesday night game to keep the momentum going.
