John Sheridan's reign at Fleetwood ended on a high with a well-deserved 2-0 win over Walsall.

A draw with Bradford saw the Saddlers secure their League One status in midweek so with both sides safe from the drop, this game had a pre-season friendly feel in the basking Fylde coast sun.

There was pride to play for, though, and the Fleetwood players stepped up to the plate to ensure Sheridan's spell ended with a victory.

The ex-Oldham man took over from Uwe Rosler in February and has steered the team away from the bottom four to safety.

But it was announced last month that Joey Barton would take on the head coach role in June.

Strikers Ash Hunter and Paddy Madden secured the win.

Hunter added another sublime strike to his scrap book as he took centre stage, whipping the ball from just outside the box into the top corner in the 31st minute.

Madden was back to his poaching best, gobbling up Mark Gillespie's parry from a Kyle Dempsey strike that was just too hot to handle in the 45th minute.
