Peterborough and Walsall cancelled each other out as the League One play-off challengers shared a goalless draw.

Walsall had the better of the first half, with Michael Ngoo directing a free header straight at Bobby Olejnik.

Olejnik twice denied Sam Mantom while Milan Lalkovic also put an effort wide.

Posh improved in the second period with Richard O'Donnell keeping out Michael Bostwick's 22-yard shot, while Danny Swanson's saved strike fell to Britt Assombalonga who could not convert.
