Crewe Alexandra 1-1 Walsall

Crewe manager Steve Davis
Crewe manager Steve Davis. His team remain in trouble after their draw against Walsall.

Tom Bradshaw's late effort extended Walsall's unbeaten run to five games as they fought back to draw at Crewe.

Crewe striker Marcus Haber wasted a one-on-one opportunity before heading the Alex in front on 13 minutes.

Kieron Morris and Andy Taylor wasted chances for Walsall but a deflected effort from Bradshaw nine minutes from time caught out Crewe goalkeeper Paul Rachubka and spun into the corner.

Crewe, who have not won in five games, remain in relegation trouble.
