Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Salford will be aiming to stay in the playoffs berth when they face Walsall in the League Two round 44. The Lions have been having their ups and downs of late, but, no doubt, a 2-0 win over Hartlepool helped them regain a much-needed confidence. With no fresh injury worries to report, Neil Wood is unlikely to make changes to the team that defeated Hartlepool on Tuesday evening.
The Saddlers, on the other hand, aim to put an end to their seven-game winless run, but seeing that they have absolutely nothing to play for in the season finale, home win should not be considered. In the first half of the season Salford defeated Walsall thanks to Matt Smith’s goal. As for the home side, both Maddox and Williams are pushing for a start after the duo came off the bench in a 3-0 defeat to Harrogate.
Highlighted Player (Donervon Daniels):
Donervon Daniels is a 186-cm-tall defender who plays for Wigan Athletic. He was born in Montserrat on 24 November, 1993 and he is a product of WBA football academy. After spending several seasons on loan at Tranmere Rovers, Gillingham, Blackpool and Aberdeen, Daniels signed for Wigan Athletic on a three-year-contract on June, 2015 and he netted his first goal for the Latics against Scunthorpe United two months later.
He made 33 appearances for Wigan in the 2015/2016 League One campaign and no doubt he helped the club secure promotion to the Championship. His main position is centre back, but he is capable of playing at right back as well. His highest market value was €250 000 on May 30, 2016.
Daniels has contract with Wigan Athletic which expires on 30 June, 2018. It has to be noted that that he was awarded WBA Young Player of the Year for the 2011/2012 season. Donvervon Daniels is a right-footed player.
Highlighted Team (Salford):
Founded during the Second World War (1940) as Salford Central, the League Two side play their home games at Moor Lane. The stadium, which was opened in 1978 and renovated in 2019, can hold up to 5,108 spectators. The Lions wear red jerseys and white shorts when playing in front of home fans, while white and black are the dominant colours of their away kit.
Salford City secured promotion to the League 2 at the end of the 2018/19 as they defeated Flyde 3-0 in the National League play-offs final. The match was played at Wembley Stadium, with Touray, Pergianni, and Dieseruvwe scoring for the Lions.
In the 1977/78 season Salford City won their first Manchester Premier Cup trophy, with the team repeating the success the following year. Bury are seen as the club’s main rivals, but their rivalry with the likes of Oldham and Rochdale is pretty big as well.
