Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Tuesday’s football game at Vale Park pits together Port Vale and Walsall, the two teams, who have always been meeting in high-scoring games. The Valiants aim to make amends for a 3-2 loss to Oldham, with the team eyeing their fifth home win of the process. You should bear in mind that Port Vale recorded four win in the previous five home games in the League Two. Head coach Darrell Clarke is likely to stick to the 3-5-2 formation.
The Saddlers, on the other hand, head into the match following a goalless draw with Rochdale. Walsall did well to beat both Oldham and Sutton in the previous two away games, but the share of spoils is on the cards at Vale Park. Both Phillips and Kiernan are pushing for a start for the visiting as boss Neil McDonald should opt to make changes to the starting XI.
