Wolves v Walsall - JPT Preview

It has taken 10 years but the wait is now over as we travel on the 529 to face Black Country rivals Wolves.
It is a Johnstone Paint Trophy game but dont let that gloss over the magnitude of a Black Country derby...We want to win!

Vital Quotes:

Andy Butler ''It's a big game only because it's the next one. We'll approach it in the same way as any other, but we're certainly looking forward to getting out there.

'It's a local derby and hopefully we'll do the business and get through to the next round.'

Wolves Team News:

Wolves look certain to be without Kevin Doyle and Scott Golbourne who are injured.

Ricketts, Griffiths, Cassidy and Evans will also be missing due to their internationl call ups.

Player to watch: Zeli Ismail

Has been a stand out star player when we have watched Wolves on Sky and the wide man will torment our defence with his trickery and skill all night.

Walsall Team News:

Walsall will only have Shane Lewis unavailable but given the result at the weekend, Dean Smith will possibly give starts to Romaine Sawyers and Andy Taylor.

Player to watch: Ashley Hemmings

Its his time! The former Wolves wide man would relish the chance of scoring the goal to knock out his former team but given our ex-albion quartet they could shine also!

Match Facts & Stats

It has been 14 years since Walsall last tasted victory over Wolves. Since then we have lost 4 times and drew once, conceeding 11 goals and scoring 3.

Ref Watch:

The man in the middle is Darren Deadman from Peterborough. Mr Deadman has been centre to controversy in a number of games he has officiated and does tend to favour the home side....heres hoping he wakes up on the other side of the bed today!

Match Prediction:

Whilst my heart obviously wants a Walsall win, my head says we will lose convincingly however this is a derby and anything goes!
