We welcome all the players, staff and supporters of Notts County to The Banks's Stadium as we go in search of a win to continue our great run.

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'

Walsall Team News:

Notts County Team News:

Notts County will have a new look strike force tomorrow following the recent loan signings of John Cofie (Man Utd) and Jacob Blyth (Leicester).
Gavin Mahon is looking to shake off the injury he sustained in the match against Crewe.
Former Saddler, Manny Smith looks set to remain on the bench.

Player to watch: Jamal Campbell-Ryce

The Jamaican wide man has been in great form this season scoring 7 goals. His pace and trickery is something we will need to watch closely tomorrow.

Match Facts & Stats

Walsall have won their last 5 home games.

Notts County have won only 2 games so far this year and have lost 3 of their last 4 away games.

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.
