Bristol Rovers v Walsall

Bristol Rovers

Memorial Stadium



The Saddlers travel to Bristol Rovers on Saturday looking to build on last week's impressive victory over Plymouth Argyle. Jon Whitney will have a full squad to pick from, with several players returning from international duty.

Bristol Rovers have had an indifferent start and will be looking to bounce back from their 3-1 defeat to Bradford City.

Vital Quotes:

Bristol Rovers Team News:

First choice centre backs, Ryan Sweeney and Tom Lockyer could come straight back into the starting line-up after missing the defeat to Bradford because of their international commitments.

Player to watch: Billy Bodin

The talented winger nearly secured a move to Cardiff City in the window and Rovers fans will be delighted to keep hold of a player, who on his day is among the best in the division.

Walsall Team News:

The Saddlers have a fully-fit squad with Tyler Roberts and Shaun Donnellan both looking to force a way into the starting line-up following their international call ups. However, the Saddlers will likely start with the same team that defeated Plymouth.

Player to watch: Luke Leahy

A change from Oztumer. Leahy has been instrumental in his left-wing back role and is a genuine attacking threat with his crossing ability, aerial prowess and long-throw.

Match Prediction:

Bristol Rovers 2-2 Walsall. An entertaining game with Bodin and Moore on the scoresheet for the hosts and Devlin and Bakayoko scoring for the Saddlers.
