Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Walsall and Swindon go head to head at Bescot Stadium in what is expected to be a close League Two game. Following back-to-back wins over Mansfield and Stockport (FA Cup), Walsall shared the spoils with Tranmere in their last league match. The Saddlers are eager to move closer to the playoffs berth, and we are positive that they will adopt an attack-minded approach in Saturday’s encounter.
Keep in mind, though, that Cameroon defender Emmanuel Monthe is banned for the match following his sending off in the draw with the Super Whites. The Robins, on the other hand, looked sharp in front of goal in a 5-0 crushing of Grimsby Town, and, taking everything into account, both teams to score betting option should be considered. With no fresh injury worries to report, Gaving Gunning is unlikely to make changes to the team that outplayed the Black and Whites at the weekend.
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.

Highlighted Team (Swindon):
Founded by Reverend William Pitt of Liddington in 1879, Swindon Town are an English football club which compete in the League Two. The Robins welcome their rivals at County Ground, the stadium which can hold up to 15,728 spectators (all-seated), with the team wearing red shirts and white shorts when playing at home.
Gray is the dominant colour of the club which turned professional in 1894. Oxford United are considered the team’s main rivals, but the Robins have rivalries with Bristol City, Bristol Rovers, and Reading as well. In 1969 Swindon Town did remarkably well to win the English League Cup, with the team beating Arsenal 3-1 in the title game at Wembley Stadium.
John Trollope is the club’s player with most appearances as he played 889 first-team games from 1960 to 1980. Premier League attacker Charlie Austin is one of the most notable footballers who played for Swindon Town in the past.
