Friend or Foe? November Review
Walsall slid into the relegation zone in a mostly nondescript month for them.
They fell into the relegation zone two weeks ago in a shambolic 4-2 home defeat to Bury and have fans scratching their heads wandering who the hell they CAN beat in the league to beat the drop.
The month started out OK, with a draw away to the (then) unbeaten Huddersfield which saw youngster Paterson to scrape a point. Bury came the next week and gave us a lesson in football with a comprehensive 4-2 thrashing. Not good enough on all accounts.
An away draw to Exeter in the FA Cup first round went to a replay, which Saddler fans could probably done without. Thankfully they went through on extra time, as a 98th minute winner from another youngster, George Bowerman lifted Saddler spirits.
The month finished with a bland 0-0 draw to newly promoted Stevenage. Not much really to be said about that game as it was...quite dull really.
Anyway, onto December! At that elusive Christmas Day position!
Go Get Em' Saddlers!
