Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Bescot Stadium will host a postponed League Two fixture between Walsall and Morecambe, the two mid-table sides. The Saddlers aim to put an end to their three-game winless run and they are likely to fight tooth and nail against the Shrimps. There are no fresh injury worries in the home team, but experienced forward Jamille Matt could sneak into the starting XI.
The Shrimps, on the other hand, aim to build on a 2-1 win over Crawley Town. Morecambe are eager to keep their playoffs hopes alive and you should bear in mind that they are eyeing their third consecutive win on the road. As the hosts want to move closer to the playoffs berth as well, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score. A man to keep an eye on in the away team will be Gerard Garner, who scored a brace in the last league match.
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.
