Both sides go into this game with poor form.
Neither side have won in their last 8 league and cup matches.
This will be Scunthorpe’s first league game since Brian Laws took over for a second time.
Walsall Team News:
Walsall will be without Flo Cuvelier and sweat on the fitness of Andy Taylor and Febian Brandy. Dean Smith must also decide on who to play on the wings following the out of sorts Jamie Paterson and Ashley Hemmings.
Player to watch: George Bowerman
Without Flo Cuvelier our star man has to be George Bowerman who has scored 7 goals so far this term. Whether Deano plays Bowerman is yet to be seen with Will Grigg scoring on his last league outting.
Scunthorpe Team News:
Scunthorpe will be strenghtened with the return of on loan duo David Prutton and Leon Clarke. Steve Mildenhall is set for his debut after signing on loan from Millwall.
Player to watch: Leon Clarke
Leon Clarke has scored 7 goals so far this term for Scunthorpe and will give the Walsall defence a torrid evening. Quality player on his day.
Match Facts & Stats

Tony Harrington from Cleveland is the man in the middle. He has refereed 9 games this season and only issued 8 yellow cards.
Whether its a shot that deflects off Grigg’s backside or a worldy from Jamie Paterson, we just need a win.
Fancy us to win this one, 2-0.
