The Saddlers make the journey to Scunthorpe on Tuesday night hoping to grab a win – something that deserted us on Saturday despite twenty four shots on goal!
Robins ‘”Once we get on a run, we`ll be fine. We`ve just got to turn it around and do that quickly.
“We want to do that with the support of the fans, we`ve got to. They will help us do it.
“I think it`s easy to look at the negatives and be critical, but it`s counter-productive. But I say it all the time, we`ve got to give them something to shout about. We have to do that by being positive.
“Tonight`s game is no more crucial than the games that have gone or we have to come’
Scunthorpe Team News:
Striker Darius Henderson remains Scunthorpe`s only injury doubt ahead of tonight`s match, which could well see Huddersfield Town loanee Joe Lolley make his Glanford Park debut.
Player to watch: Paddy Madden
Madden is one of the most gifted strikers in League 1. He has netted five goals already this term in a struggling side.
Walsall Team News:
Walsall have no fresh injury worries.
Isaiah Osbourne continues to gain match fitness.
Player to watch: Tom Bradshaw
Bradshaw was the only positive out of our game with Scunthorpe last season and will be hoping to add to his eight goals already this term.
