Next up for The Saddlers is a home fixture against moneybags Salford City, who are struggling compared to many people’s expectations so far this season.
The Ammies visit us sitting 15th in League Two with 12 points from their opening 10 league games, with their manager at the moment being ex-Blackburn and ex-Blackpool boss, Gary Bowyer.
Two ex-Saddlers may feature for Salford on Saturday - Tyreik Wright and Aramide Oteh, with both having featured on loan at some point in the past few seasons.
Salford City’s last six games
4th Sept - Carlisle United (a) - Lost 2-1
11th Sept - Bradford City (h) - Won 1-0
18th Sept - Tranmere Rovers (a) - Lost 2-0
25th Sept - Northampton Town (h) - Drew 2-2
2nd Oct - Colchester United (a) - Won 2-0
5th Oct - Tranmere Rovers (h) (PJT) - Lost 2-0
The Saddlers head into this game on the back of what many would say is a creditable draw with Exeter City last weekend (PJT game not included) and will probably have a bit of extra support behind them thanks to the ‘Friend for a Fiver’ offer on for this game, although how many friends you’ll have left after they’ve been to this game may total one less…….
Conor Wilkinson, Liam Kinsella, and Rory Holden all remain out injured, with Ash Taylor also missing from our last two outings (including PJT), so he may also be a doubt for this game.
The starting XI seems to pick itself given the injuries we’ve got, but Jack Rose will also make his 21/22 League debut following the well deserved call up to England Under 21’s for Carl Rushworth. George Miller will be hoping he’s got his shooting boots on still to add to his 4 league goals since joining on loan.
Hoping we can kick on in this game, but what do you think?
What would your starting XI be?
Anybody risking taking a mate?
What do you think the attendance will be? Expecting a coach load of Salford fans at best so the ‘Friend for a Fiver’ really needs to kick in to show any improvement on this front IMO.
- Walsall Win
- Salford City Win
