Vale to bounce back after upset

A shock 3-2 defeat away to Oldham at the weekend ended Port Vale’s seven-game unbeaten run in all competitions but they will see this game against a labouring Walsall as a great chance to return to winning ways.

Walsall were held to a 0-0 draw by Rochdale and haven’t been able to kick on since their impressive win over play-off hopefuls Sutton United last month. The Saddlers looked like a contender for the top-seven themselves after that result but a 3-1 loss to Harrogate and their scoreless stalemate with Rochdale leaves Walsall in 15th place, five points off the play-off places and eight above the relegation zone.

Walsall’s struggles on the road to continue

Port Vale had four wins in succession at home prior to a 1-1 draw with Bradford but they will fancy themselves to return to winning ways here against a team that doesn’t tend to travel well against teams above them.

Already this season, Walsall have been beaten on the road by Newport, Hartlepool and Tranmere, all three of which are above them in the standings – all three stand below Port Vale who are third – which would suggest another defeat is likely again.

We’re confident that Port Vale will win this weekend and we have predicted a final scoreline of 2-1. The hosts head into the game as the form favourites but we don’t believe there will be much between the pair at the final whistle.
