Walsall fans are confident of a good start according to our latest poll on Twitter.
As we begin our League 2 campaign we asked how many points the Saddlers would get in August with many of them predicting a 10-14 points haul from our six league games.
Our season starts away at Northampton on Saturday 3rd August with the Saddlers also having trips to Crewe and Plymouth in the first month of the season.
Our home start sees us host Forest Green Rovers, Newport and Grimsby.

Full results are as follows
0-4 points – 7%
5-9 points – 31%
10-14 points – 45%
15+ – 17%
A 10-14 point haul from August would see the Saddlers firmly in the top seven, with the average points total for 7th at the end of August being eight points.
Darrell Clarke has history for a slow start which picks up around Autumn/Winter so it will be interesting to see how the Saddlers start under our new boss.
The season is just twelve days away and we cannot wait for the new era!
