Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Walsall and Accrington go head to head at Bescot Stadium in what is expected to be an interesting League Two game. The Saddlers aim to bounce back from back-to-back losses to Southampton (FA Cup) and Stockport County (League Two) and we are positive that they will fight tooth and nail against the Accy Stanley. Loan signing Mo Faal is likely to make his Walsall debut on Saturday after joining the club from WBA earlier in January.
The visitors, on the other hand, aim to recover from a 2-1 loss to Gillingham. As Accrington will go for a win in Saturday’s encounter as well, we believe that punters from all around the globe can find value in betting on both teams to score. Joseph Gubbins, who limped off with injury in the last league match, is unlikely to feature against Walsall.
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.
