Walsall vs Peterborough United Match Prediction

By William Hall

Walsall host Peterborough United to The Bank's Stadium this weekend in League Two. Walsall come into this one of the back of two straight defeats and just one win in their last five. It has not been the start they would have wanted but currently sitting in 13th, things could have been a lot worst. In fact, things could get worse this weekend as they welcome one of the leagues inform sides in Peterborough who are second having picked up 16 points in just seven games. Read on for a full match preview complete with all our best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Walsall have been performing quite well at home of late, winning two and drawing one of their last three games. However, those games were against sides in the bottom half of the table which makes this look a whole different challenge for the team. If Walsall don't turn up and play at their best, they will be in a lot of bother with Peterborough punishing a lot of teams of late whether they are playing at home or away. In fact, two of The Salops last three games on the road have ended 4-1 to Peterborough which means the travelling does not affect them in the slightest.

Walsall will need to be very careful of Boro forward Jack Marriot with the player already having six goals to his name in just seven games. He is one of the leagues biggest threats which is a daunting prospect for any defender in League One.

Walsall Preview

Walsall couldn't come into this game off the back of a much worse result, having been beat 5-1 to Rotherham away from home. Things started badly in the game, going behind in the 13th minute. It was just three minutes before the second went in and it just got worse with the team 4-0 down at the break. Bakayoko gave Walsall hope in the 49th minute but the game was put to get once and for all, in the 88th minute as Rotherham made it 5-1. A reaction will be wanted this weekend from Walsall, but with current form not looking very promising, it is hard to see them undoing one of the better teams in the league so far.

Walsall Team News

Walsall can take on Peterborough with no concerns on injuries or suspensions.

Peterborough United Preview

Peterborough got back to winning ways during the week, beating MK Dons 2-0 at home. It took until the second half for The Town to get in front, but in the 47th minute Tafazolli gave his side the lead and just five minutes later Maddison all but secured the three points putting the side two to the good. Another performance like that this weekend and it should be enough to see off a struggling Walsall side. Away from home in the League Peterborough have been very impressive, not losing in three, winning two and winning those two 4-1.
