Saddlers hit five at Wigan... O'Kelly's verdict...THE SADDLERS' reserves notched up their first Central League win of the season with an entertaining 5-3 victory at Wigan Athletic.
It was the home side who took an early lead only for Troy Hewitt to equalise just past the half-hour mark.
Shortly afterwards we got our noses in front when Matt Preston found the net.
The Latics were back on level terms two minutes later before Kieron Morris restored our lead going into the half-time interval.
It didn't take long into the second period for Morris to add his second and our fourth.
By this stage we were well in control and Ben George added a fifth goal following a neat move.
There was still time for Wigan to pull a goal back to make it 5-3, but we held on to claim our first win of the season.
WALSALL: Roberts, Purkiss, George, Flanagan, Preston (Christopherou), Holden, McQuilkin, Heath (Rush), Hewitt (Griffiths), Gray, Morris. Sub not used: Jones.
