Mat Sadler: “They’ve got fantastic players throughout their team, they come with extremely good experience throughout (their squad) and they have a really good manager in Neil and their coaching staff so it’s going to be a tough game played in really high temperatures.”

Neil Wood: “We’re expecting a tough game, they’re going to be a good team, they’ve got a bit of consistency with the manager from the end of last season stepping into that role this season, and they’ve recruited some new players.”



Defender Liam Gordon will miss the game as he is currently on international duty with Guyana.

Chris Hussey will be available after serving a one-match ban.

Brandon Comley, Jack Earing and Rollin Menayese remain sidelined. 

As for Salford, they will be without experienced defender Adrian Mariappa who is also on international duty with Jamaica. Matthew Lund will miss the game through suspension while Elliot Watt, Luke Garbutt and Liam Shephard are expected to miss the game.

Walsall and Salford have met just eight times in total with the first coming back in October 2019.

The Saddlers have recorded just two wins over the Ammies, who have won the other six meetings, meaning there has never been a draw between the two clubs.

Salford have won the last three encounters with Walsall’s last victory coming in October 2021 when Conor Wilkinson scored an injury time winner.

Neil Wood’s side are yet to win at home in 90 minutes this season albeit they have only played two league matches at the Peninsula Stadium. They also drew 1-1 with Leeds United before winning on penalties in the Carabao Cup.

Mat Sadler’s men will be looking for their first away victory since January’s FA Cup triumph away at Stockport County.
