Ahead of this weekend’s match against Bradford, we take a look back at the Saddlers’ last five matches against the Bantams…


28th November 2015 – Walsall 2-1 Bradford – League One

Walsall secured a hard-fought win over in-form Bradford in what proved to be Dean Smith's final game in charge. Tom Bradshaw tucked home his 12th goal of the season to give the Saddlers a first-half lead, before Lee Evans' sumptuous 64th-minute volley drew Bradford level. But the hosts sealed victory with 16 minutes remaining when Milan Lalkovic coolly slotted past Bantams keeper Ben Williams.

A second-half header from Manchester City loanee Jordy Hiwula earned Walsall a point at top-six hopefuls Bradford. Anthony Forde poked wide for the Saddlers in a goalless opening period, before Billy Clarke’s drilled the Bantams ahead on 51 minutes. But Hiwula salvaged Walsall a draw when he nodded home Jordan Cook’s pinpoint cross, 16 minutes from time.



16th August 2014 – Walsall 0-0 Bradford – League One
Chances were in short supply in this scoreless early-season encounter. Walsall, who were held to a 1-1 opening-day draw at Port Vale the previous week, threatened through Adam Chambers’ long-range drive and Ashley Grimes’ volley. James Hanson went closest for Phil Parkinson’s Bradford with a weak header.

Craig Westcarr’s second-half double secured the Saddlers’ first victory in 11 matches. The striker, who had not scored in over two months, poked home Andy Taylor’s left-wing cross to put Walsall ahead on 68 minutes. And Westcarr then sealed the points 12 minutes from time with a powerful 20-yard strike into the top corner – his 14th goal of the season.



5th October 2013 – Walsall 0-2 Bradford – League One
Kyel Reid scored a goal of the season contender as in-form Bradford climbed up to fourth with victory at the Banks’s. Walsall, unbeaten in five heading into the match, fell behind to Reid’s spectacular 30-yard drive on the stroke of half-time. And the Bantams doubled their advantage shortly after the break, James Hanson finishing expertly past Richard O’Donnell from eight yards. Paul Downing and Ashley Hemmings went closest for the Saddlers.
