Walsall 0-0 Hartlepool

Walsall extended their unbeaten run to six games and secured a point in their bid to avoid relegation in a goalless draw against Hartlepool.

Pools skipper Sam Collins was injured in the warm-up, while Walsall lost defender Olly Lancashire early on following a blow to the head.

Antony Sweeney saw his second-half effort saved by home keeper David Grof.

And Walsall should have won it late on when Sam Mantom, on loan from West Brom, squandered a point-blank chance.
