Walsall   0 - 0   Bristol Rovers

Walsall 0-0 Bristol Rovers

Walsall 0-0 Bristol Rovers

Walsall saw their winless run extended to eight games as they were held to a goalless draw by Bristol Rovers.

Rovers were the dominant side throughout, and a desperate tackle by Darryl Westlake prevented Wayne Brown giving the visitors the lead.

On 69 minutes Stuart Campbell sent Jo Kuffour through for Rovers but the striker saw his shot cleared for a corner by defender Clayton McDonald.

But Walsall should have won it late on when McDonald's header hit the bar.


Bristol Rovers manager Paul Trollope told BBC Radio Bristol:

"The main thing for me today is that I was very proud of their effort, their commitment and their passion to play the game.

"We feel we were worthy of a goal or two today, it didn't come and we're frustrated by that.

"We probably could have created one or two more things coming in from wide areas. If I'm nitpicking our crosses and movement could have been a little bit better to get one or two more chances."
