Walsall 3 Burnley 2

A dramatic afternoon at Bescot ended with a 3-2 win over Burnley, to lift spirits and continue the rollercoaster season that is the 2002-3 campaign. Not long after Pedro Matias has seen Walsall into a 3-0 lead and apparent comfort, Jimmy Walker was sent off for bringing down Gareth Taylor. Gavin Ward couldn’t save the resulting penalty, and nerves jangled in injury time when first Glenn Little got the score to 3-2, then somebody missed a free header. But Walsall took their chances today, and move ten points clear of relegation, probably needing just two more wins from nine games to secure first division football for another season.
