Walsall vs Salford City Match Prediction (05-10-2019 10:00)

Our Prediction:

Walsall

Will win



The first game of the season has been a long time coming for Crawley Town but their hopes of a successful campaign took an immediate blow as they fell to a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Carlisle United. The Red Devils will be cursing their slow start to the match as they conceded twice before the half time whistle, and althoughBez Lubala grabbed a goal for Crawley in between and they had second-half chances to level, they were unable to cancel out their hosts lead and open their account.

This weekend sees a side who have experienced exactly that predicament look to make it back to back wins as newly promoted Salford City make the trip to face off against a Crawley Town side who will be looking to bounce back from opening day disappointment. It is always interesting to see what happens when a side who has won promotion is when faced with their first few games of the new season, do they use the momentum following their promotion or is life at the new level going to take some time to get used to?

Scores Vs Opponents

With this in mind, we think that backing him to score anytime against Crawley this weekend looks like a good bet to make. Emmanuel Dieseruvwe was very impressive in front of goal last time out and although he has taken a bit of time to break through into the first team, the fact that he started last time out suggests he should be in for a big season.

However, as this is their first match in the Football League on the road, there is a question mark over how well they will travel, so backing the visitors on the Draw No Bet market seems to be a prudent option. We are not done there though, as the visitors look to be the stronger side and if the opening day is anything to go by, they should be able to make it back-to-back victories this weekend.

Walsall have looked well up to standard so far in League 2, and their history against Crewe suggests they can get a result here. They have lost just 1 of their last 6 meetings with the Railwaymen, so we think backing a Walsall Double Chance looks a great bet here. Considering 4 of their last 5 encounters have ended in 1-1 stalemates, were also going for a 1-1 correct score prediction.
