Fuel crisis? What fuel crisis? We run out of gas after 70 minutes most weekends! That’s the view of many Walsall FC supporters so far this season, but driving into the tenth month of the calendar we go.
October kicks off with the Matt Taylor Derby, where Matt Taylor’s Exeter City play host to Matt Taylor’s Walsall FC.
Exeter City find themselves sitting pretty in 6th place whilst The Saddlers arrive sitting just one point off the bottom of the table, in 22nd positon
The Grecians started a little slowly in the league this time round but are starting to get back to normal now and their last six fixtures have yielded the following results:
24th Aug - Chelsea U21’s (PJT) - Drew 1-1 Lost 4-3 pens
28th Aug - Harrogate Town (A) - Drew 1-1
4th Sept - Forest Green Rovers (H) - Drew 0-0
11th Sept - Scunthorpe United (A) - Won 4-0
18th Sept - Sutton United (H) - Won 2-0
25th Sept - Hartlepool United (A) - Drew 1-1
Walsall arrive in a bit of an injury crisis, with Rory Holden and Conor Wilkinson still out through injury, and they have been joined in the medical room by Liam Kinsella and Emmanuel Osadebe, with Jack Earing also potentially not fully fit.
A small ray of sunshine for The Saddlers is that captain Joss Labadie is back in contention following a 3-game suspension.
Other than that, I can’t offer you too much hope, so what are your predicting the starting XI will be for this game, and more importantly perhaps, who will
be on the bench?
If you’re going do let us know, I’ll be there because it’s one of the five grounds in this division I haven’t done yet.
PS. No, I am not walking there.
- Exeter City Win
- Walsall Win
