Last time we met:



Betting:


The bookies can't make their minds up on this one - Boro are the slightest of underdogs - 7/4 with Sky Bet whilst Walsall are 7/5. The draw is 9/4 which shows how up-in-the-air this one is.

For Boro to win to nil, you can get odds of 4/1 - not bad against a team that has struggled to find the net this season.

Recent form:


Walsall have been on a downward trajectory for some time now as their form in recent months have stalled their play-off chances, which now look pretty much dead. Just two wins since mid-January hasn’t been enough to compete with the likes of Peterborough, who at one point they held a considerable lead over.


Vital Statistics:


One of the main reasons Walsall’s push for the play-offs went astray is their lack of firepower in attack. The Saddlers have only the 19th best goal scoring record in the league, clearly not good enough for a team that were hoping to challenge the top six. As often is the case, their defensive record is much stronger; currently they have the fifth best in the league.

Walsall have contrasting home and away form – on the road they’ve been superb, seven wins and nine draws mean they’ve got the sixth best away record in the league whilst they’ve had a disastrous season at home – only seven wins mean they’re 18th in the home league table.


Key man:


Veteran striker, Craig Westcarr is enjoying a profitable season in front of goal – 15 goals marks a good return for any striker in the league but if you add on the fact that he’s also made six assists, his season looks even more impressive. Westcarr actually featured for Stevenage during the 2008 pre-season and scored two goals, however with the news that Steve Morison would be staying meant Westcarr went back to Kettering.
