Bury v Walsall - Preview

Bury

Walsall

Gigg Lane

Walsall have to stop the rot!
Quite simply October has been a disaster, 0 wins, 1 draw and 4 defeats has seen Walsall drop mid table of League 1.
Bury on the otherhand are in the bottom 4 currently but they won their last game so will confident. Tomorrow is another one of those games Walsall are expected to win, but probably wont.

Vital Quotes:

Kevin Blackwell told BBC ""Walsall are very much a hit-and-miss side. When they're good, they're good, and when they're bad, they're awful. We're a bit like that and that's what it's like in this division."

Dean Smith told the Official Site 'They've come close to breaking their duck in recent weeks. We've watched them a few times and know that we are in fr a tough game against a determined and well-organised side.
Kevin Blackwell has come in and made an impact, so we will have to be ready for the challenge that they will present to us'

Bury Team News:

Bury will be without central defender Zac Thompson who is still suspended.

Player to watch: Flo Cuvelier

Flo has been the pick of the bunch for the last few games. Its scary to think how Walsall would perform without the on loan Belgian.

Walsall Team News:

Walsall will be without defender Dean Holden who was sent off on Tuesday against Sheffield United. Will Dean Smith continue to rest top goalscorer George Bowerman?

Player to watch: David Healy

Quite a few to choose from - Ex players always bite you on the backside and Bury have three of them! Mark Hughes, Peter Sweeney and Andy Bishop will all like to score against their former side.
Their main threat has to be Northern Ireland stirker David Healy, what a coup for Bury!

Match Facts & Stats

Bury havent kept a clean sheet in 13 games! However their form against Walsall is superb.
In the last 8 meetings, Bury have won 6, Walsall 1, Draw 1

Ref Watch:

The man in the middle is Mark Heywood from Cheshire. He has only refereed 7 games this season but already showed 20 yellow cards and 1 red. People will remember him from our opening day game v Doncaster (I hope he's improved!)

Match Prediction:

Our record against Bury isnt great and neither is our recent form, with all that considered I would be happy with a point, 1-1.

Next Fixtures:
