Fleetwood Town 2-3 Walsall

Walsall Reserves edged a five-goal thriller as Sam Perry's late strike secured victory over Fleetwood Town in the Central League.

Brendan Kiernan opened the scoring for the Saddlers from the penalty spot after 22 minutes. 

The hosts levelled a minute before half-time as Max McMillan finished past Saddlers goalkeeper Jenson Kilroy. 

Walsall regained their lead with 20 minutes to go when Trialist scored with a fine left footed strike. 

The lead didn't last long as Fleetwood responded again and equalised just two minutes later when Cheick Thiam powered home. 

It was the Saddlers who had the final say though as Perry netted in the 91st minute to ensure Mat Sadler's men took home all three points. 

The reserves are next in action on Tuesday 12th April when they travel to Bolton Wanderers.
