Our prediction for this FA Cup match:
Bescot Stadium will host Saturday’s FA Cup game between Walsall and Bristol Rovers. The Saddlers did well to beat Crawley in the League Two in midweek, with the team putting an end to their five-game winless run, and, no doubt, they regained a much-needed confidence. Walsall are eager to claim a major scalp in their FA Cup opener, and we are positive that they will fight tooth and nail against Bristol Rovers.
The Pirates aim to bounce back from a 2-0 loss to Peterborough, but seeing that the League Two side want this win more that the visitors, we are tempted to put our money on Darrell Clarke’s troops. When the two teams met in the EFL Trophy in September Walsall eliminated Bristol Rovers on penalties, which is yet another reason why we are tempted to put our money on the hosts.
