WALSALL became the fourth team in February to climb into seventh in the congested League Two table on Tuesday night.

The Saddlers, who were booed by their own fans when hammered 3-0 by Newport County AFC on February 10, beat Accrington 2-1 to record their fourth straight victory.

They are above Gillingham on goal difference and there are a glut of clubs in the play-off picture with 16th-placed Bradford just five points back with a game in hand, while sixth-placed Barrow have been dragged towards the pack.

The Saddlers, Gills, Harrogate and Notts County have all been seventh this month after AFC Wimbledon started the year in the play-off berths.

Walsall are currently in the final spot but could be overtaken by three teams this weekend – Gillingham, Crawley and the Exiles.

“We’re seventh but there’s a long way to go,” said Walsall boss Mat Sadler after the beat Accrington thanks to goals by on-loan defenders David Okagbue and Emmanuel Adegboyega.

“Yes, we have put ourselves in the picture and the conversation but there is still so much hard work ahead and there will certainly be no drop off from us.”

Notts County looked sensational when beating the Exiles at Rodney Parade just a fortnight ago but now they are 14th after shambolic defending in a 4-3 home defeat to bottom side Sutton.

Boss Stuart Maynard said: “It’s a performance I’m not proud of. It’s a performance as a whole that I feel embarrassed by, especially the manner in which we have conceded goals once again.”

Wrexham continue to have travel sickness after drawing 1-1 at relegation-threatened Forest Green, salvaging a point thanks to Paul Mullin’s penalty in added time after Emmanuel Osadebe’s opener.

“We’re having a moment where we’re not producing but that will come. We need something like that penalty to get us running,” said Wrexham boss Phil Parkinson.

Forest Green will be frustrated at dropping two points late on but they are finding their form ahead of Saturday’s vital trip to fellow strugglers Grimsby.

Colchester, 21st, picked up what could be a precious point when drawing 1-1 at Salford while Rushian Hepburn-Murphy helped himself to a brace in Swindon’s 3-1 defeat of Tranmere.
