Man of the Match: Walsall – the result!!

The Silkmen fans present at The Bescot Stadium witnessed a heroic display from our beloved blues on Tuesday evening, as the team beat The Saddlers of Walsall in a penalty shoot-out and were rewarded on Thursday night as the Moss Rose club were handed a 3rd round tie at Premier League side West Ham United. Let’s just hope Mark Yates’ men can put in an Olympic standard performance as we look to smash The Hammers! In the meantime, which Silkmen player won the Man of the Match award at Walsall?

Harry Smith, who hit his second strike of the season, and Silkmen legend Danny Whitaker, heading in an injury time equaliser, both achieved 6% of the votes, however for his four penalty saves, three in the penalty-shootout and one during the game itself, where Andy Cook converted the rebound, the SLE Man of the Match is Manchester United’s on-loan goalkeeper Kieran O’Hara, claiming a massive 88%!
