Walsall   1 - 0   Southampton

Walsall 1-0 Southampton

Walsall 1-0 Southampton

Walsall beat promotion-chasing Southampton and moved out of the League One relegation zone.

The home side had goalkeeper Jimmy Walker to thank for keeping the scores level, as he denied Lee Barnard, Morgan Schneiderlin and Adam Lallana.

Jon Macken burst onto an Aaron Lescott long ball and chipped keeper Kelvin Davis to put the Saddlers in front.

Southampton were unable to find an equaliser and fell to their first defeat in six games.


Southampton boss Nigel Adkins told BBC Radio Solent:
"We absolutely battered them. They got one opportunity, it came of Rahdi's (Jaidi) head and the lad's gone through and he took it well.

"We looked powerful, strong and we created so many opportunities and the ball wouldn't go in the back of the net.

"We looked a massive threat from set-plays. We had so many opportunities it was untrue."
