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!

Vital Quotes:

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.

Match Facts & Stats

The Saddlers have not won in their last four against Scunthorpe – drawing one and losing three.

Scunthorpe have scored eleven goals in their last four games against the Saddlers.

Walsall’s last win at Glanford Park came in 2012 thanks to a goal by Flo Cuvelier.

Ref Watch:

Paul Tierney is the man in the middle.

His last Walsall match is one to forget when we lost 8-2 against Bristol City on the final day of last season.

Tierney has awarded four penalties in the last five games involving the Saddlers.

Match Prediction:

I’m afraid we will lose this one.

Our record against Scunthorpe is poor and Scunthorpe will need a win otherwise former Saddler Mark Robins might get the boot.

2-1 Scunthorpe – Sawyers for us.
