Legge's first is golden for Bees

The big centre-back struck early on with a powerful header from John Bostock's corner to ensure a potentially money-spinning tie. But the stopper was also the hero at the other end as he slid in with a last-gasp tackle to deny Steve Jones in the dying minutes. Brentford were always good value for the win, Ben Strevens forcing a full-length save from Saddlers goalkeeper Clayton Ince before wasting a gilt-edged chance. The Bees also had strong claims for a penalty turned down when Strevens' curling shot was knocked down by the hand of Mark Hughes. Walsall, despite a late rally, rarely threatened and Brentford keeper Lewis Price was only called on in the dying minutes to make a double save from Matt Richards and Troy Deeney.
