Nicholls: Late winner

Alex Nicholls netted a late winner as Walsall came from two goals down to beat League One strugglers Wycombe 3-2.

The Chairboys took a deserved lead on 14 minutes when Reading loanee Scott Davies spotted that Clayton Ince had wandered off his line and sent a superb lob over the stranded keeper from a free-kick.

Sustained Wanderers pressure followed and their lead was doubled when Matt Phillips laid the ball into Davies' path, and the impressive playmaker smashed in from the edge of the box eight minutes before the interval.

The Saddlers came out after the break with more purpose and pulled one back when Matt Richards put substitute Steve Jones through on goal to slot home after 55 minutes.

Mark Hughes then equalised on 80 minutes when he lashed home a loose ball, before Jones sent Nicholls clear seven minutes from the end, allowing the forward to slot home the winner.
