Barnet 1 Walsall 1

Good fun this one. Met up with Richard, Dom and a friend of his before the game and went into the Walsall end as Richard is a die-hard Saddler. Despite their high league position, Walsall weren't very good and soon fell behind when Dean Sinclair hooked in from close range after the defence failed to deal with a standard long throw. Following the goal, Walsall plumbed depths so abysmal that Dom was moved to compare them to the David Hillier/Ian Selley era at Arsenal. Needless to say though, Barnet failed to capitalise and Walsall equalised with a deflected 20-yarder shortly after half time. Both sides had chances after that, Barnet struck the bar via a Walsall head, and Simon King cleared a shot off the line at the other end. Not a bad game all in all and certainly preferable to watching England puff their chests out against the Dog and Duck reserves.

    Aye a good day out. Barnet look a decent side (by league two standards) and should be ok this season. How Walsall are still unbeaten is anyone's guess.

    As for Oakley being a die-hard Saddler!?! Ha, I think he had hair the last time he was seen at the Bescot.
