Saddlers go South
Fitness first stadium
4th Sept 2007
7.45pm kick off
Walsall go south and hope for some rich pickings from the Cherries in the JPT. Walsall are licking there wounds after a poor start whilst there is unrest amoungst some Cherries fans who have seen finicial troubles hit the prospects of a decent season
It's been a bit quiet on the old quote front so far, but we will update as we hear more.
Bournemouth Team News:
The nature of the early JPT rounds means that there is every likely hood of players been tried and other rested. It is likely that some of Bournemouths older players may have to settle for a place on the bench, such as Anderton and Bradbury whilst Pitman maybe given a run out up front. Some are sugesting a chance in keeper as well.
Player to watch: Josh Gowling
The young centre half has impressed when I have seen him, It will be interesting to see if he has made the progress which would sugest that he is on the way to bigger better things.
Walsall Team News:
Just How will DD play this one, we need a win to booast whilst it would be nice to see what other players can do.
With news limited on Alan Picken and Tommy Mooney injured, Sonko and Bradley away on international duty it is certain there will be changes. Troy Deeney ay get another run out and some say Martin Butler will be given a place on the bench to aid his recovery from the virus, despite his 90 minutes on saturday. In midfield Sonner is out and Dobbson came off injured saturday so a make shift centre midfield is possible.
Player to watch: Troy Deeney
Has found the step up bigger than some thought he would a goal would make all the difference to his confidence.
Match Facts & Stats
