Half-Time Report: Bury take shock lead against Walsall

High-flying Walsall are succumbing to a 1-0 defeat against Bury in their League One clash at the Banks's Stadium.

Walsall are succumbing to a 1-0 defeat against Bury in their League One clash at the Banks's Stadium.

The visitors, struggling in the lower reaches of the table, shocked their high-flying opponents when, just six minutes in, Craig Jones found space and smashed the ball into the corner of the net from a very tight angle.

Reece Flanagan countered for Walsall with a long-range drive in the 12th minute, but the effort flashed wide of goal, while Sam Mantom came forward with a thumping drive midway through the half which Rob Lainton parried to his left.

In spite of the Saddlers growing into the game, they still had to be alert against Bury, who were dangerous on the break and saw chances from Danny Mayor and Jones come close.

Romaine Sawyers weighed in with two efforts in the latter stages of the half, but Lainton was equal to both as Walsall were forced to go in at the break a goal down.
