Sitting only one point behind Saturday's hosts, Walsall have been flying high in recent weeks, most recently beating Doncaster Rovers 2-0. Before victory at the Eco-Power Stadium, the Saddlers progressed to the third round of the FA Cup, coming from behind to defeat Carlisle United 2-1 after late goals in the second half from Andy Williams and Douglas James-Taylor.
Sitting in eighth position only two points behind Mansfield Town, who occupy the final playoff position, Neil Wood's side will be leapfrogged by Walsall if they suffer defeat at the Peninsula Stadium. Before successive victories, Salford's majority shareholders, which include Manchester United legends David Beckham, Nicky Butt, Paul Scholes, Ryan Giggs and Phil Neville, witnessed the Ammies without a victory in six matches. A comfortable 3-0 victory against Gillingham, courtesy of goals from Theo Vassell, Ryan Watson and Callum Hendry, saw the Ammies register their first victory in four league matches. A 1-0 success over Bradford City in the Football League Trophy, thanks to Lorent Tolaj's first-half strike, registered a much-needed confidence boost ahead of a potentially tricky encounter against one of the league's most in-form sides. Languishing in League Two for as long as Salford have resided in League Two, Walsall have registered an impressive 20 points from their last nine matches.
