Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Stevenage will be looking to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Crawley Town when they take on Walsall in the League Two round 30. The Boro have been playing some low-scoring goals of late, and we are positive that they will rely on their solid defence in Saturday’s showdown. Elliot Osborne could be recalled to the starting XI after scoring the winner in the midweek clash. The Saddlers, on the other hand, aim to bounce back from a 2-1 loss to Cheltenham Town.
Walsall are on an eight-game winless run in the League Two, and given Stevenage’s display in the triumph over the Red Devils, we believe that home win should be considered. A win over Walsall will see the hosts escape the danger zone, and we are positive that they will prove their worth on the field. Centre-forward Caolan Lavery will be the man to watch in the away team.
Highlighted Player (Scott Cuthbert ):
Born in Alexandria, Scotland on June 15, 1987, Scott Cuthbert is a defender who plays for Stevenage in the League Two. Cuthbert is a product of the Celtic football academy, but he did not see any game action with the Hoops in the Scottish Premiership.
After ending his loan spells with Livingston and St. Mirren, the Scottish footballer joined Swindon Town in 2009 where he quickly established himself as a first-team regular. After scoring five goals in 80 appearances for the club, Scott Cuthbert moved to Leyton Orient before the start of the 2011/12 season.
After almost a five-year spell with the Brisbane Road outfit, the right-footed defender joined Stevenage in the summer of 2018, and he has been playing for the Posh ever since. He made his Stevenage debut in a 2-2 draw with Tranmere Rovers in the 2018/19 season opener. At the end of the campaign the Scottish footballer was named the club’s Player of the Year.
Highlighted Team (Walsall):
Founded in 1888, Walsall are a professional club that play home matches at Bescot Stadium. The capacity of the venue is 11,300 people and it was opened in 1990. Nicknamed the Saddlers, Walsall footballers wear red shirts and white shorts when playing in front of home fans, while black is the dominant colour of their away kit.
Walsall played out a goalless draw with Aston Villa on April 9, 1888 in their first ever game, with the team recording their biggest win on March 4, 1899 against Darwen (10-0). The Saddlers suffered their biggest defeat on December 17, 1892 as they were beaten by Small Heath 12-0.
Walsall fans consider wolverhampton wanderers the club’s biggest rivals, but the Saddlers have rivalries with Shrewsbury Town and Port Vale as well as the two clubs are only 30 miles away from Walsall. Crystal Palace centre-back Scott Dann is one of the most notable footballers who played for the Bescot Stadium.
