Bournemouth vs. Walsall

The Goldsands (Dean Court)



Bournemouth v Walsall - Build Up

The Saddlers go into this game on the back of a 3-1 victory against Preston last week. Walsall will be hoping to get back to winning ways on the road having lost to Stevenage in their last away fixture. But with 3 wins out of 4, Dean Smith's side will be full of confidence.

Bournemouth however will be all guns blazing following their heavy defeat to Swindon last weekend.

There will be a minutes applause prior to kick off, in memory of former Bournemouth boss John Bond who sadly passed away this week.

Vital Quotes:

David James has recently signed for Bournemouth until the end of the season and the former England international will be available to make his Cherries debut tomorrow.

Player to watch: Lee Barnard and Tommy Elphick

Tommy Elphick, Lee Barnard and Shaun Macdonald have all scored 2 goals this season.
Bournemouth havent had difficulty scoring from all areas this season however the ball has ended up in their net 15 times already.

Walsall Team News:

The Saddlers will be without brothers Adam and James Chambers, who remained sidelined and also without Jimmy Walker who has a short term injury.

Manager Dean Smith should name an unchanged team that defeated Preston last week with loanee Karl Darlow expected to stay in goal.

Player to watch: George Bowerman

George Bowerman is firing on all cylinders at the moment, with 5 goals to his name already this season - many Saddler fans will be counting on him to score again tomorrow.

Match Facts & Stats

Walsall beat Bournemouth 2-0 in the corresponding fixture last season with both goals coming from Ryan Jarvis.

Bournemouth won the last match between both sides with a 1-0 victory at the Banks's Stadium.

Ref Watch:

Anthony Bates from Staffordshire will referee the match. He has refereed 39 times in the past 2 seasons, handing out 4 red cars and 98 yellows.

Match Prediction:

Bournemouth have gone 14 games since a no score draw so history suggests there will be goals tomorrow! That said Bournemouth home record so far is Player 4 Drawn 4, so with both of these stats I will go for a 2-2 draw.
