Another great game against Rovers ended in another goal feast, but the Saddlers will be kicking themselves for losing a two goal lead despite at times being second-best with possession.
Walsall beat Rovers 4-3 having been 2 down in Bristol before Christmas, and then came from 2 down in the Auto Windscreen before winning on penalties, so there was a pattern to expect…
The Saddlers got off to a perfect start when Jason Brissett, in for the dropped Mavrack, fed Rambo who scored his 19th of a remarkable season. Despite Rovers pressure it was the Saddlers who doubled the advantage when Cramb hit his second penalty on successive Saturdays to banish memories of 5 misses by other Walsall players from the spot this season.
After the break Rovers began their comeback and had equalised by the 63rd minute through two goals from Cureton. But it was the main man Cramb who restored the home advantage four minutes later, and the Saddlers looked set to hold onto the points and move back into the automatic promotion place, until the final minute.
A poorly hit back-pass from Wayne Evans was cleared by Jim Walker only to rebound off the head of Cureton and land in the net.
Sir Ray should now take up Mr Bonser’s newspaper offer made last week and open the chairman’s cheque-book. Mind the dust though Ray.
