Our prediction for this League 2 match:
After suffering a 2-0 loss at Hartlepool, Walsall will be looking to return to winning ways when they take on Stevenage at Bescot Stadium. The Saddlers made a slow start to the season, with the team collecting only one point in total to date, and, no doubt, they are eager to put an end to their four-game winless run. Head coach Matthew Taylor could opt to make changes to the starting XI, with both Emmanuel Osadebe and Emmanuel Monthe pushing for a start.
The Boro, on the other hand, aim to retain their spot in top seven. Stevenage head into the match following a 1-1 draw with Port Vale, and they are surely capable of matching the relegation strugglers at Bescot Stadium. A man to watch in the away team will be Luke Norris, and we predict that he is going to take advantage of Walsall’s shaky defence.
Highlighted Player (James Clark ):
Born in Berlin, Germany, James Clark is an experienced defender who plays for Walsall in the League Two. After spending his youth career at Watford, Clark played for the likes of Oxford United, Oxford City, Salisbury City, Woking, and Bristol Rovers before joining Walsall on a two-year deal.
The defender, who wears the No. 5 jersey at Walsall, has a contract with the Saddlers which should expire in June 2021. His primary position is centre-back, but he is capable of producing fine displays as a right-back as well. His preferred foot is right. James Clark made his League Two debut with Walsall on August 3, 2019 in a 1-0 win over Northampton Town.
He scored his first goal for the Saddlers in the Northampton Town clash as well, helping the team pick up all three points from the PTS Academy Stadium clash. Clark scored his first professional goal during his spell with Bristol Rovers. He found the net in a 2-1 win over Wycombe at the start of the 2018/19 season.
Highlighted Team (Stevenage):
Based in Hertfordshire, England, Stevenage Borough are a professional club that compete in the League Two. The Boro are well known for their red and white home hit, while dark blue is the dominant colour of their away kit. Stevenage play their home games at Broadhall Way, the stadium which can hold up to 6,722 spectators and they were founded in 1976.
The Boro have won FA Trophy on two occasions (2006/07, 2008/09), with the team clinching the Herts Senior Cup title in the 2008/09 season thanks to a 2-1 win over Cheshunt. Luton are considered one of the club’s biggest rivals and there have always been fireworks in matches between the two sides.
In 2015 fighting broke out between rival fans near to the end of the clash at the Lamex. It has to be noted that Stevenage Borough were founded in 1976 after the bankruptcy of Stevenage Athletic.
