Cheltenham vs Walsall Prediction

Cheltenham pulled off a thumping 3-0 win over Oldham at home last week to extend their unbeaten streak to three games on the trot. Three different players got their names on the scoresheet for the hosts in that clash while their counterparts were kept from bagging even a consolation goal.

Furthermore, the home side have admitted defeat just once in their past seven games in the fourth division. Deservedly, they are now just three points away from breaking into the top three.

Meanwhile, Walsall have been coping well in their respective League Two campaign as well. The guests have secured maximum points from their past two fixtures, the most recent of which was a 2-1 win over Salford on the road.

It is also worth mentioning that the visitors have secured the bragging rights in five of their past nine games, garnering eighteen points from a possible twenty-seven.

Be that as it may, the hosts have been at the losing end just twice at home this season. Impressively, they are yet to lose to a side outside the top ten.

Taking into account that the reverse fixture of this matchup also saw Cheltenham come away with all three points, Walsall’s chances of picking up the win are certainly looking bleak.

However, as far as statistics go, Walsall are among the top five away sides in the cluster. Given that the hosts have shared the spoils in half of their past four games here, back a draw no bet just to be on the safer side.

Furthermore, the home team have kept a clean sheet in just one of their previous eight games here in all competitions. Considering that Walsall have been consistent in scoring two goals or more in each of their last three outings, expect the visitors to find the back of the net along with Cheltenham this weekend.
