Match Facts & Stats
Walsall and Burton have never faced each other in a competitive match.
The Saddlers are yet to lose in the league on their travels and have only lost once at home (v Bury).

Referee – TIM ROBINSON

Fourth Official Anthony Tankard
Robinson has officiated five games so far this season, and has dished out twenty yellow cards and one red so far.
His last Walsall game was in February last year where the Saddlers drew 1-1 with Bradford.
The Saddlers have drawn all four games where Robinson has officiated.
It will be a tough game but I have a feeling we will be back at the top on Saturday – 2-0 Bradshaw and Sawyers.
