A New Year, a new start...we hope.
Walsall face Stevenage at home tomorrow. We welcome all from Stevenage.
Dean Smith 'Everyone is playing their part at the moment and during what is a busy period, we are looking after ourselves in the right way in order to be ready for each game.
This will be another tough one, there is no doubt about that. Stevenage are a big and powerful side who, just like last season, are challenging in the higher echelons of the table'
Walsall striker Febian Brandy, who has scored twice in his last three outings, is suspended after picking up five yellow cards.
George Bowerman is likely to step in, while defender Dean Holden is still struggling with an ankle injury.
We finally give a start to our joint leading goalscorer George Bowerman.
Many will question why he hasnt featured much in recent months but its likely to be down to Smith's preference for hard working strikers over natural goalscorers.
Stevenage have had extra time to rest after Saturday's visit of Notts County was postponed.
Defender Jon Ashton's long-term Achilles injury makes him the only notable absentee for Boro.
The prolific front man has scored 8 goals already this season.
Stevenage have won only 1 game in their last 7 outings and have conceeded 15 goals in that spell.
Walsall havent lost in their last 4 home games.
We face Stevenage for the 4th time in our history, having not yet beat them.
Our last encounter at The Banks's Stadium ended 1-1, with Andy Butler scoring our goal.
The man in the middle is Scott Mathieson from Cheshire. The high profile referee has officiated 22 games this season and has issued 42 yellow cards and 4 red this season.
Given Stevenage poor form recently I would be dissapointed if we didnt take all 3 points and kick on this roller coaster season. 2-0, goals from Bowerman and Grigg.
