Late Mullin magic sinks Saddlers

11 August 2009 10:24
The veteran frontman, who has just come off the transfer list, got on the end of Sean McConville's cross to head home the winner in the 90th minute and seal a second-round spot for the Reds.

The League One side took the lead after nine minutes when Jamie Vincent's free-kick from the left-wing was volleyed home by Alex Nicholls from eight yards out.

But the Saddlers faced an uphill battle after 35 minutes they were reduced to 10 men after captain Rhys Weston slid in to two challenges and picked up two bookings in 11 minutes.

Sub Bobby Grant, only on the pitch for three minutes, then punished Walsall after they failed to clear a ball which bobbled around the area and wideman Grant fired it home after 53 minutes.

Stanley were desperately unlucky when McConville fired a shot which hit the post seven minutes from time, but Mullin popped up at the death to take Stanley through.
