Tranmere Rovers 1-1 Walsall

A Cole Stockton goal rescued a point for Tranmere against Walsall as they shared the spoils at Prenton Park.

Walsall took the lead when Milan Lalkovic curled a fine 25-yard strike past Rovers goalkeeper Owain Fon Williams.

Craig Westcarr almost doubled the Saddlers' lead soon after, only for his effort to be saved by Fon Williams.

The home side got the equaliser 12 minutes from time, thanks to substitute Stockton's shot into the bottom corner.
