Walsall vs Barrow Predictions


Both teams are struggling and in desperate need of some improvement. Both have recently changed managers, and a draw is the most likely outcome in a cagey affair at the bottom of League Two.

  • Walsall are winless in their last 7 matches and last 7 home matches (League Two).
  • Walsall drew 2-2 with Barrow earlier this season (League Two).
  • Barrow have won 3 of their 15 away matches this season (League Two).
  • Barrow have seen under 2.5 goals in their last 4 matches (League Two).

Head to Head


Walsall possess a 14-10 head-to-head advantage over Barrow, with the two sides drawing nine of their 33 competitive meetings. 

When they met earlier in the season at the Holker Stadium, it ended in a 2-2 draw with Walsall equalising twice. 

Walsall Form


Walsall are currently on their worst run of this season, failing to win any of their last seven matches to plummet to 18th in the table.

Since Brian Dutton took over from Darrell Clarke, the Saddlers have lost four of six matches, scoring just three goals. 

Walsall conceded a 94th minute winner in a 1-0 defeat to Cambridge last Saturday.

Walsall Injuries & Team News


Following a narrow late defeat to Cambridge, Brian Dutton may stick with the 5-2-3 system.

Cameron Norman came off injured after 29 minutes, so he is likely to miss out.

Academy graduate Sam Perry could make his third appearance for the club, whilst Jayden Reid, Derick Osei Yaw, and Jack Nolan will all be pushing for recalls after they were left out against Cambridge.

Barrow Form


Barrow’s form has improved since they sacked manager Michael Jolley, with The Bluebirds winning two of their four matches since his dismissal.

They recorded a 2-0 win over Mansfield on Saturday with Patrick Brough getting both goals in the last 16 minutes.

However, Barrow have picked up points in just three of their ten League Two matches in 2021.

It is a poor run of form which must improve if they are to escape relegation back to the National League.

Barrow Injuries & Team News


Caretaker Manager Rob Kelly is likely to stick with the same 3-5-2 system and personnel who defeated Mansfield last weekend.

Top goalscorer Scott Quigley is the dangerman upfront. He has eight goals this season.

Verdict

I am predicting a score draw. Walsall do possess more quality, but Barrow have improved lately and Brian Dutton's wait for his first win as Walsall boss is likely to go on.
