Match ends, Fleetwood Town 0, Walsall 1.
Romaine Sawyers scored the game's only goal as Walsall ended Fleetwood's nine-month unbeaten home run.
Goalkeeper Richard O'Donnell tipped Martin Paterson's curling shot wide to prevent the hosts from taking the lead.
Sawyers then took advantage of poor Fleetwood defending at the back post to smash a powerful, low shot past goalkeeper Chris Maxwell.
Paterson nearly levelled but Paul Downing cleared off the line, with O'Donnell beaten, to secure the win.
