Tip Reasoning

  • Walsall’s 3-0 win over lowly Colchester is the only time they’ve scored multiple goals in any their last seven league games.
  • Both Swindon and Walsall have conceded 24 goals in League Two this season, giving them defensive records bettered only by six teams in the division.
  • While Swindon have a poor home record of two wins in nine, Walsall have only won three of 10 on the road.

Swindon’s poor home form enough to turn punters off?

Swindon beat Walsall 2-1 in FA Cup action just a fortnight ago, but backing the hosts to repeat the trick on Saturday may not be the best available play. Swindon have lost their last two League Two matches and failed to win in three, netting just two goals. They’ve also lost four successive games in all competitions since that FA Cup victory.

Visiting Walsall, whilst sitting five places and five points behind their hosts in the League Two table, can match their record of just 24 goals conceded, a record bettered by just six teams in the fourth tier. They beat lowly Colchester 3-0 last weekend, but had failed to score more than one goal in six consecutive games beforehand, and have only found the net nine times in 10 away league trips.

Meanwhile, although Swindon currently occupy League Two’s final playoff place, their home record is truly dreadful; they’ve won just two of their nine matches at the County Ground, taking as many points on their own turf as bottom club Scunthorpe United.

Low-scoring affair likely

Swindon have only scored 10 goals and conceded 11 in their nine home league games, and with Walsall’s away trips proving equally tight (they’ve scored nine and conceded 10 on the road), a low-scoring affair seems likely.

Backing under 2.5 match goals seems the smart play for this fixture, with a 1-1 draw potentially being a strong correct score prediction, given Swindon’s woes at home this term.
