Vital Quotes:

Dean Smith 'Notts County have had a tough time of it recently, but Chris Kiwomya has taken over as caretaker-manager and he is a very good coach. He's got a lot if good credentials and this is the chance for him to prove himself.

We will give our opponents the respect that they deserve. We will be ready for the challenge that they will present to us. It's one of those games where we will have to be well prepared and ready to do the right things'

Ref Watch:

Trevor Kettle from Berkshire. The card happy official has dished out 5 red cards and 76 yellows. One thing to note in 26 games this season Kettle has awarded 10 penalties!

Match Prediction:

Considering 'Ginger Mourinho' has won the 'cursed' manager of the month award and Notts County are without a manager you would be tempted to say Walsall wont win this one. However if anyone can break the hoodoo, we can. 2-1 Saddlers.
