Highlights: Lye Town 2-3 Walsall - Saddlers advance in Birmingham Senior Cup

14 September 2017

Goals from Reece Flanagan, Maz Kouhyar and Milan Butterfield sent Walsall through to the second round of the Birmingham Senior Cup.

The Saddlers ran out 3-2 winners over Lye Town on Tuesday evening, coming back from a goal behind after conceding to an early strike from Connor Collins.

Collins' 32nd-minute free kick broke the deadlock, before a powerful shot from Flanagan found the roof of the net, with Kouhyar's precise strike finding the bottom-right corner of the goal before half-time.

It was 3-1 soon in the second half as Butterfield finished a superb flowing move, playing a neat one-two before taking the return into the box and finishing well past Lye's keeper.

Jack Till pulled one back late on but The Saddlers advanced to the second round.
