In the end, a hard-fought but definitely well-deserved 3pts for the U's.
As a final P.S. to the day, I was chatting with a elderly gentleman from Wolves on the train back from Bescot to New Street, who had returned to England for the first time after emigrating to Australia over 40 years ago. He agreed that it was the right result for the match, but also commended us (and Walsall) on the spirit that the match was played out in - very fair, not overly dirty or aggressive - all in all a pleasing day out at the football for the gentleman, who returns to Australia this week. The reason we started chatting in the first place? - well, just before leaving for Australia all those years ago, the last game of football he got to see - Walsall v Colchester at the old Fellows Park (must have been 25th Nov 1967 I reckon). When he knew his travel plans, and compared them with fixture lists, he knew he just had to make it the first (only actually) match when he got back as well.
