December - a great end to the year for us?

After last night, plus recent results and play, we are brimming with confidence and heading in the right direction! Just how important could December be for us and really give us a head of steam (or more of!) going into 2023? I had a look at a few things and noticed:

  1. Our four games before end of Dec are Salford, Crewe, Swindon and Stockport - so we are mainly playing play off and form teams - a great chance to catch and overtake them.

  2. Carlisle have Barrow, Northampton and Bradford as their next 3 games - they will take points off each other so even more chance to catch and overtake them.

  3. There are only 4 points from us in 10th to Barrow in 4th - even more incentive to keep this run going and really cement a place in the top 7 by the start of next year.

  4. Our goal difference is currently better than anyone in the division, other than the top 3 and Carlisle, so basically like an extra point on some teams. Although the top 7 have scored more goals than us, only Stevenage and Orient have conceded less than us of the teams above us - we are solid and consistent in defence and as a team!

Come on Saddlers, let’s do this and put ourselves into a great position for the start of 2023…and we have also have R3 of the FA Cup as well!!



Looking forward to our couple of home games over the festive season and expecting some bumper gates with how well we are playing at the moment , and hopefully our results will put us well and truly in the mix .


A tough end to the year too!
If we do well it will make for an interesting January…
