Walsall travel to Wycombe

Wycombe Wanders
vs.
Walsall

Causeway Stadium

saturday 17th March 2007

3pm kick off

This game is Massive did you get that Massive, just MASSIVE. In fact the next two games away at Wycombe and MK Dons could well shape where we will finish in the league. However in truth it will be possible to gain automatic promotion having lost the next two games, but the pressure will be tremendous.
The size of the task on saturday, simple stat Wycome have lost one out of 17 home games this season, letting in just 9 goals, enough said.

Vital Quotes:

Tommy Money has been shooting his mouth off and saying how much Wycombe need a game against a team like Walsall to get back on track after last saturdays defeat against Torquay.
Whilst the Bescot Buzz has been dominated by player news, Matt Carbon, Troy Denney etc. The talk about the match has really to underline that it could be a classic, and Walsall are not under estimating the size of the task.

Wycombe Wanders Team News:

Key centre half Mike Williamson is out. Whilst fellow defender Will Antwi has been carrying an injury.

Others are also struggling but I expect some smoke and mirrors stuff from the Wycombe camp. These include Steffan Oakes, Tony McParland and Sergio Torres and Fola Onibuje. Also Goalkeeper Ricardo Batista has a knock on the knee but was deemed fit enough to play in the 3-0 defeat at Torquay.
Upfront, in the last four games Tommy Mooney has been partnered by ex northampton hotshot Scott McGleish. Leaving league Two's hotshot Jemaine Easter on the bench.

Player to watch: Tommy Mooney

Despite been on the losing side at Bescot he showed enough to prove he will trouble our young defence. Unfortunatly his experience could be the difference between the two sides.

Walsall Team News:

With Roper out for the season, Alan Picken not fit, and Matt Carbon having not signed on the dotted line (yet), It looks odds on fit agin Chris Westwood will return to the back four to add some experience. Otherwise it seems to be a fully fit squad, with injury victim Darren Wrack training again after last saturdays horror tackle, so it's up to you DD.

Player to watch: Scott Dann

The nineteen year old has been head and shoulders above many a defender in this league this season but could face his sterest test against Tommy Mooney, this battle could make the difference between a draw or defeat.

Match Facts & Stats

This stage of the season in this type of game stats count for nothing.

Ref Watch:

Dermot Gallagher, should be good enough, my only worry is how often have we seen top flight refs step down a league or two only to have a stinker.

Match Prediction:

I would be more than happy with a draw and a clean sheet.

Next Fixtures:

Next Sunday MK Dons have the last of there three home games on the bounce against us
