Fleetwood Town   1 - 1   Walsall

Walsall goalkeeper Jimmy Walker
Jimmy Walker has played more games for Walsall than any other goalkeeper

Fleetwood were denied an FA Cup shock against 10-man Walsall after a stunning display by veteran keeper Jimmy Walker.

Matt Richards slotted home to put Walsall ahead, but Town's Steve McNulty missed a penalty after Richard Taundry felled Ian Craney in the box.

Craney was then the victim of a reckless two-footed challenge by Ryan McGivern that earned him a red card.

Jamie Mullan's looping 20-yard strike drew Fleetwood level, but Walker made a string of late saves to force a replay.

Fleetwood very nearly equalled their best ever FA Cup performance as they reached the second round two years ago, and may even consider this as an opportunity missed considering the circumstances.

After finding themselves behind, Craney fought his way into the box only to be tugged down by Taundry, but club captain McNulty threw away the chance to equalise and could only drill his penalty against the bar.

Craney was at the eye of the storm once again when Manchester City loanee McGivern launched himself into a dangerous and unnecessary challenge that deservedly saw him receive his marching orders.

But Fleetwood stepped up their game and it paid off when substitute Mullan's mishit effort looped up and over Walsall stalwart Walker.

It was Walker's experience which kept his side in the game, as he pulled off saves from Nathan Pond and Lee Thorpe in the closing stages to keep the Saddlers' cup dreams alive.
