This is the third time that these two have met in just 16 days and in the series so far, Walsall have dominated, with an easy win and a draw, both away from home . The inform Saddlers are breathing down the necks of the automatic promotion challengers,with an unbeaten run of 9 matches ( just one loss in 14), a run made even more impressive , coming as it did ,after a very sluggish start to League 1 life, where they were winless in their opening seven fixtures.

Town are struggling and have put in some very lacklustre performances recently. They have won just one match, which came against lower league opposition, in nine starts and have a greatly reduced squad this evening and must choose from just 16, maybe only 15 available first team players. They will be without top scorer Andy Kirk and several other key starters, due to a combination of injury, suspension and one loanee being refused permission to play, by his parent club. Tough ask for the visitors, who should be more concerned about their league position, as they sit just a handful of points outside the drop zone and have 3 of their next 4 games away from home, including trips to Forest (this weekend) and Doncaster.

5.5 points Walsall -1/2 ball 1.90 general.... NOW 1.83

Good Luck.
