Our penultimate home fixture of the 2020/2021 Sky Bet League Two season sees us welcome moneybags Salford City to the Banks’s Stadium,
Currently 11th in League Two with 5 games remaining, The Ammies are 3 points behind Newport County who occupy the final play-off spot, and this is their target for the season. They have dispensed of two managers this season in Gary Alexander and Richie Wellens and are currently led by Gary Bowyer on a short term deal until the end of the season.
Salford City’s last six games prior to their visit to Walsall have been:
27th March - Exeter City (a) - Lost 1-0
2nd April - Grimsby Town (h) - Drew 1-1
5th April - Forest Green Rovers (a) - Won 2-0
10th April - Stevenage (h) - Won 2-1
13th April - Bolton Wanderers (h) - Lost 1-0
17th April - Tranmere Rovers (a) - Drew 0-0
Walsall team selection is still up for guessing as Brian Dutton likes to make a few changes it seems. Jack Rose is likely to continue in goal, behind Mat Sadler who has started the past 22 games, so will surely start the 23rd. Other than that, anything could happen, and a lot will depend on the fitness of Rory Holden
After such a ■■■■ season, it’s only fair that I give you a ■■■■ player to have played for both clubs, and then leave the rest to @TheBostedSlab to work out. Ladies and gentlemen, I present you with…Rory Gaffney.
I believe that this game may benefit The Saddlers as Salford will be pushing for the win which should make it an open game. We seem to play much better against teams that like to open up than those that are battling away at the bottom for their lives.
- Walsall Win
- Salford City Win
