Walsall views on the upcoming fixture.

https://upthesaddlers.com/t/swindon-town-a-league-two-sat-16th-sept-3pm/10480

Might be best to check their stats, Kinsella is still a couple of weeks away from fitness so is a 99.99% chance of missing the game. Unless Flynn was being deliberately obstructive, we have Khan back and will probably play him instead of Cain, although Cain did well on Saturday Khan is a bigger influence on the game IMO.

They recon they have sold 450 so far, interesting.

ĎConsidering the distanceí. Itís less than 90 miles. Anything in double figures is almost a Derby.

Walsall are shit away and never travel to Town in many numbers, other than for the promotion decider under Sturrock.

Last 4 games at the CG they have averaged just 346 for each game. Likely to be the same this time give or take a few, doubt they will bring near 500.

They are in 9th place but they are unbeaten in 4 league games, they have scored 11 and conceded 11 and on 11 points.

Walsall have only 1 away win (Salford on Saturday) since their last away win at Swindon on Boxing day last year.

Their top scorer is on just 2 goals but with 4 players on 2 goals each.

We are in 5th place unbeaten in our last 7 league games, we have scored 20 and conceded 11 so far.

Our top scorer is the top goalscorer in all English leagues on 9 goals, 2 higher than the next highest scorer in England. We have Kemp on 6 goals who is equal 3rd highest scorer in the English leagues.

Their results so far this season....

Morecambe 2-1 Walsall
Blackburn 4-3 Walsall *EFLC
Walsall 2-1 Stockport
Wrexham 4-2 Walsall
Crewe 2-2 Walsall
Walsall 2-3 Brighton U21 *EFLT
Walsall 1-1 Grimsby
Walsall 1-0 Colchester
Salford 1-2 Walsall


Walsall have won 2 times in the last 11 meetings at the County Ground, Town winning 4.
Walsall have won 7 times in the last 33 meetings at the County Ground, Town winning 13.

Our biggest wins were 5-0 in 2022 and 5-0 in 1927, Walsalls biggest wins at the CG were 1-4 wins 2000 and 1939.

In all games between the us at the CG Swindon have won 24 games, 15 draws and 14 defeats, Town scoring 105 and Walsall scoring 75 goals.

In all games between the clubs at both venues Swindon have won 39 of the 105 games, 30 draws and 36 defeats with Town scoring 159 goals and Walsall scored 155 goals.

Could go either way.

Att: 9,235 (365 Yam Yams)

Anyone would think they are travelling from Poland.
To be fair have a soft spot for the Yam Yams as used to work in the area mainly with Wolves and Baggies fans. Some cracking stories on the piss with some of them.

I kid you not once went to Wolves v Swindon Corporate, the West Brom lads supporting us.
I was so pissed I had double vision and never seen so many players on the pitch.
I think we lost 1-0.

Thinking about around Euclid Street and a walk to The Merlin. Used to park in The Grove but not sure if their car park has a time limit nowadays.

The Grove is now a Miller and Carter restaurant. We used to also utilise the Grove, have a couple of pints and leave the car in their car park. Miller & Carter do a decent lunch menu (used to be something like 2/3 courses for £xx) so we used to get a bite and then leave the car there before walking to the ground. That's a couple of seasons back now, so not sure of the current situation but I think if you buy something there, they don't bother if you leave your car there for football.

Pretty poor given the distance and still one of the better away crowds.

I fucking hate League Two.
