Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Following a thrilling 3-3 draw with Hartlepool, Walsall will look to put an end to their eight-game winless run in the League Two when they take on Barrow on Saturday afternoon. The Saddlers have drawn each of their last six league fixtures, with the team remaining in the middle of the table. Walsall are eager to keep their playoffs hopes alive, and they are likely to adopt an attack-minded approach against Barrow. Jamille Matt remains in the recovery room, but there are no fresh injury worries in the home team.
The Bluebirds, on the other hand, aim to move closer to the playoffs berth as well, and seeing that they managed to find the net in each of their last three league fixtures, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score. Both Young and Whitfield are pushing for a start after the duo came from the bench in a 1-1 draw with Salford City.
