How Walsall didn’t win this, only they will ever know. I was given a free ticket by someone at work and after tweeting this was my 81st game they showed my tweet and face on their big screen which was nice.
On a roasting hot afternoon,I was in the Tile choice lower in full view into the beating sun’s gaze, I was burning up I can tell you. Walsall had a effort ruled offside after 3 minutes . They then hit the post but could not convert.
Walsall took the lead on 48 minute a hopeful scuffed lob from Andreas Makris, their record signing found its way past Eastwood. Oxford then hit the post, before Chris Maguire”s poor shot took a wicked deflection to plop into the bottom corner.
