Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Tranmere will look to kick off the new League Two campaign in great manner when they take on Walsall at Prenton Park on Saturday. The Super Whites aim to bounce back from a pre-season defeat to Burnley, and we are positive they will go all guns blazing at Walsall. Anyhow, home win should be considered as the club chiefs did well to reinforce the squad in the summer transfer window. Liverpool product Paul Glatzel is pushing for a start.
The Saddlers, on the other hand, finished the last season in 19th position in the standings, eight points clear of the relegation zone. Walsall are eyeing a better result in the new League Two campaign, but they will have a big fish to fry in the Prenton Park clash. It has to be noted that Walsall key attacker Elijah Adebayo joined Luton Town earlier this summer.

Liam Feeney is an English footballer who plays for Tranmere Rovers as a midfielder. Born in Hammersmith, England on January 21, 1987, Feeney started his senior career at Hayes, and after scoring eight goals in 46 appearances for the club, he moved to Salisbury City in 2007.
The experienced footballer for several other English clubs as well, and, no doubt, Blackburn Rovers, Bournemouth, and Bolton Wanderers are the most notable ones. Nowadays Liam Feeney plays for Tranmere Rovers in the League two on loan from Blackpool. His main position is right wing, but he is capable of producing fine displays as a left winger as well.

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.
