Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Situation in Stevenage’s dressing room is alarming ahead of the visit of Walsall. The Boro are stuck at the bottom of the League Two standings ahead of Matchday 36, with the team being nine points behind the safe zone. Since Stevenage are low on confidence ahead of Saturday’s football match, we do not believe that they are capable of grabbing something from the game.
Walsall, on the other hand, are eager to move a little closer to the play-offs berth. The Saddlers have been scoring goals for fun in the League Two of late, and we are positive that they will take advantage of the current situation at the Lamex Stadium. In the first half of the season the two teams played out a goalless draw, but a lively contest is on the cards this time out as both sides are likely to go for a win in the Lamex Stadium clash.

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.
