It was a full house, on Saturday 28 January 2023, with an attendance of over 10,000 for the FA Cup clash between Walsall and Leicester a meeting of a Premier League side at the Saddlers in the 4th round of the FA Cup. This was always going to be an exciting encounter as Leicester were winners of the FA Cup in 2021.
Walsall missed some chances and defended brilliantly to hold on and did not concede until late in the game. A missed penalty by Tielemans and a possible deflection, gave them the goal- Leicester were lucky. They met a Walsall team who committed themselves 100% but were unlucky not to get a return match. But the tenacity of the Walsall players was great to watch. It was a good game.
