Saddlers to visit the Keepmoat on Tuesday 2nd February...THE CLUB can today confirm that our rearranged Sky Bet League One fixture with Doncaster Rovers will take place on Tuesday 2nd February (7.45pm kickoff).
Following our progression into the Fourth Round of the FA Cup, the match at the Keepmoat, initially scheduled for 30th January, had to be moved.
The visit to South Yorkshire will be of particular interest to Head Coach, Sean O'Driscoll who spent five years in charge at Doncaster between 2006 and 2011.
The two sides last met back in September when a late Tom Bradshaw brace was enough to earn the Saddlers all three points. It took 85 minutes before the deadlock was broken by the 23-year old who fired a stunning half volley into the top corner. Bradshaw then doubled the lead in the last minute of the game with a deft lob over Thorsten Stuckman.
Ticket details will be released in due course.
Our Walsall Senior Cup game with Lichfield City (2nd February) will still go ahead with a young side now set to make the trip to Brownsfield Road.
