L2 Preview

Here we go chaps, the last ten games of the season starts this weekend. Just ten games! The season is drawing to a very exciting anti-climax, which is very unfavorable if you`re a Walsall fan.

Game of the weekend, it can only be at Victoria Park, despite it being a Friday night. The highflying Monkey-hangers will take on a buoyant Lincoln side. It is a game that every Saddlers fan will be keeping a close eye on. Hartlepool are unbeaten in the last 16 games, conceding just seven goals in the process. Lincoln will going out all guns blazing to resurrect their automatic promotion bid, as they not won in three games, with their last win being a 2-1 over Walsall at the Bescot. This game is surely one to look out for and it will provide an attacking edge, which will set the foundations for an open contest.

Walsall have only won one game in the last six, so questions are still being asked. However, two super Kevs, a 4-1 and a clean sheet away from home with a defence of kids later has seen the Saddlers put their promotion campaign back on the rails to League One. Chester come to Bescot with a good away record, with only seven defeats in all competitions this season. This should alert Walsall to be wary come 3pm Saturday. Complacency will be punished! Here are the fixtures in full:

Friday, March 9
Hartlepool v Lincoln City 7.45pm (Home Win)
Wrexham v Bury 7.45pm (Draw)

Saturday, March 10
Barnet v Stockport (Away Win)
Boston Utd v Bristol Rovers (Home Win)
Hereford v Grimsby (Draw)
Macclesfield v Shrewsbury (Home Win)
