    Backing us to win this 2-1, Walsall are on a bit of a spiral downwards.

    I reckon we take our chances this time and move closer to the 50 point mark that should see us safe.

    Bright and Thomas for us

    I hope we smash them all over the park. Unlikely I know, but after the two games this season in cup and league, with their classless pr*cks giving it the big un right in front of us (not just fans but players too), I really want to win this one. Rapidly getting close to my ever growing shit list of teams I dislike.

    Last minute winner, celebrate in front of their away fans after Leahy has gone off injured because he got wiped out in the first minute.

    Hopefully Bakayoko will start and give a bit more against his old team, Bayliss may be injured so Meyler in for him. Hopefully Stockdale can play another game.

    Will be interesting to see which Left Back it is in the lottery this week.

    What do we do when Bayliss Kelly and Meyler are all fit?

    Let Bayliss sit on the bench for a bit.

    On a pretty dire run at the minute with 8 losses in 11 matches with only one win and two draws.

    I think we'll grab a win but we can't fall in the same trap as we usually do by starting off brilliantly and tailing off in the second half, as despite their form they have a good side. The one to watch is Andy Cook who's clearly got goals in him as he's shown throughout his career.

    Judging by the mood on their forum Walsall seem to be lower on confidence than we might be at the minute so that's something we have to capitalise on. Cliche but an early goal will probably knock the stuffing out of them.

    They have a game tomorrow so hopefully Wimbledon can rough them up a bit.

    Yeah, Bakayoko should be given the chance to impress against his former paymasters.

    I think we will sneak another 1-0 win.

    Walsall have a mid week match at home to Wimbledon, if they lose it I can see Dean Keates getting the sack prior to us playing them.

    That's the same mentality our fans had before, in November and December they played 13 games and won 3, 2 of those games were against City.

    Shouldn't write them off based on their form.

    When we have played Walsall this season we have lost through lapses of concentration or individual errors, we need to ensure we take the chances we create otherwise I can see them nicking it.

    I'm going with a 2-0 win to City, but it won't be easy.

    We are due a game where it all clicks and we take 50% of our chances and someone gets an absolute hiding.

    2-1 to us with them scoring in the 80th and us getting hammered and holding on for 10 minutes is more like it.

    2-0 up on the 80th minute I'd still be petrified.

    Yes Dean Keates is skating on thin ice, with only 14pts from the last 19 games.

    If we take our chances we will win comfortably.

    So not confident at all then!
