The Trinidad and Tobago international was beaten by Chris Whelpdale after just six minutes of Saturday's League One contest but then produced a catalogue of fine saves to make sure the Saddlers did not sink without trace.

Whelpdale was on hand to prod home from close range after Craig Mackail-Smith had flicked a long Charlie Lee throw into his path but proved to be the only player able to beat Ince.

The Walsall shot-stopper prevented Aaron Mclean and George Boyd doubling the home side's lead before the interval and he was in even better form after the break.

Ince deflected a Boyd drive against an upright moments after the restart before blocking from Mackail-Smith when the home striker was clean through on goal.

Walsall, under the control of caretaker boss John Schofield, were rarely seen as an attacking force. Mark Bradley fizzed a first-half volley straight at Posh goalkeeper Joe Lewis before screwing a second-half opportunity across the face of goal.

Is Anybody Still Saying 'Wenger In'?

Even the most sensible and loyal Wenger apologists are now saying that he should leave the club. We also have lots more on Brendan Rodgers and a Chelsea plea...
