Craig Westcarr's strike ensured Walsall claimed the scalp of Championship side Leeds 1-0 in an entertaining pre-season friendly at the Banks's Stadium.

Westcarr fired home the only goal of the game from just inside the penalty area after 11 minutes following good work from former United academy graduate James Baxendale.

Both sides enjoyed a host of chances to add to the scoreline but were denied by wayward finishing or great goalkeeping, Leeds stopper Paddy Kenny producing the save of the game to keep out Saddlers substitute Romaine Sawyers in the second half.
