Gillingham

Banks's Stadium

21/04/14

15:00

We welcome Gillingham to The Banks's Stadium with neither side with anything to play for other than pride.

Vital Quotes:

Dean Smith 'Our aim is to get as many points as we can and finish as high as we can. Professional pride means that we won`t allow the season to just peter out; we have worked too hard to allow that to happen.


There is a lot of potential here and our performance levels have generally been good throughout but we haven`t necessarily got the number of points on the board that we have deserved'

Walsall Team News:

Walsall are still sweating on the fitness of Milan Lalkovic.

Player to watch: Febian Brandy

Febian continues to impress as his loan spell is coming to an end.

His no nonsense approach and die hard attitude is something we arent use to seeing from the little magician but we embrace it.

Gillingham Team News:

Gillingham have no injury worries.

Player to watch: Akinfenwa

The Beast will be on show today as Butler and Downing aim to try and keep him quiet.

Match Facts & Stats

Gillingham have failed to win here in their last 14 attempts. Their last win at WS1 was back in 1992.

Our last meeting here ended 0-0.

Ref Watch:

The man in the middle is Darren Sheldrake. Mr Sheldrake was in charge of our 5-1 victory against Notts County which saw the Saddlers then go on a winless run.

Match Prediction:

End of season feel to it, either 5-5 or 1-1.
