Squeaky Bum Time

By Bescotbanter
After a disappointing season, Walsall Football Club find themselves just one place and one point above the npower League One relegation zone, and with only two games remaining The Saddlers are facing the real prospect of returning to League Two just four years after winning it under the tutelage of Richard Money.
Despite having picked up just eleven points from the previous ten games Walsall are still masters of there own destiny but would obviously benefit from some favourable results during the run in. With Swindon Town now relegated there are only five possible candidates, Notts County, Walsall, Dagenham & Redbridge, Bristol Rovers and Plymouth Argyle, to take the three remaining relegation places, Walsall hold a slim advantage over the teams below but as recent results have shown anything can happen when the pressure's on.

The Saddlers two remaining fixtures are; the final home game of the season versus mid-table Charlton Athletic and a tricky away tie to promotion chasing Southampton, Walsall have defeated both clubs in the league this season so are clearly capable of emerging victorious, but as the last few games have shown there is a lack of ability to close out a game and hold on to a lead, and with both opposition clubs enjoying relatively good spells, Walsall will need to produce stellar performances to have any hope of keeping their position in the league for another season, so as Fergie would say, it's squeaky bum time...
