Former Fulham youth-teamer Elijah Adebayo saved Walsall from their first defeat of the new League Two season as the Saddlers and Colchester United shared the spoils with a 1-1 draw at the Banks' Stadium on Saturday afternoon,
Prior to today's fixture, Darrell Clarke's side were unbeaten in the opening three games in the division, winning one and drawing the others.
The Anglo-Nigerian curled the ball past the goalkeeper, taking his tally in the league to two for the season, having opened his account on the opening day win vs Grimsby Town.
Two minutes later, he missed a glorious opportunity to snatch all three points for the home team, with his effort well saved by the goalkeeper.
Irish-born midfielder of Nigerian descent played the last five minutes for Walsall while Colchester United's giant center back Omar Sowunmi was a non-playing substitute.
Adebayo was one of four Walsall players nominated for the official Man of the Match accolade.
