Walsall will host a relegated Burton Albion in Round 17 of the League One season.

The Saddlers are 9th in the table with 7 wins and 4 losses. In the last 6 games from all competitions they have 3 wins and 2 defeats, with losses coming against a Southend and newly promoted Luton.

The team managed by Dean Keates has scored only 4 goals in those games while concede 11 which is a disappointing fact. This is also the case in the league season so far as they have conceded more (19) than they have scored (18).

At home they are won 2 games on the trot after a 5 game winless streak including 3 losses. Both games saw over 2.5 goals scored.

The Brewers have 3 wins and 2 defeats in the last 6 games in all competitions. They are 16th in the league in their first season after relegation.

The club from Staffordshire has 7 defeats and 5 wins this league season. They too have conceded more (21) than they scored (19).

Nigel Clough’s team have only 1 win in last 6 games on the road. Another major problem is that they have conceded 11 in all those matches and 4 of those 6 games had over 2.5 goals in total.

Both these two teams are either equal or one point between their neighbors in the table and a win would mean they could progress up.
