Preview - Walsall

9 November 2012

TOWN make the trip up the M5 to face Walsall at the weekend.

THE VIEW

Manager Paolo Di Canio has said that Town need to approach Saturday’s fixture in the right way.

He said: “We have a chance to go there play our game and try and get the maximum we can: three points.

“Anything can happen it depends how you approach the game. Everyone can damage the other team. Obviously the best team is the team that can keep attention, recharge the battery more mentally than physically as soon they can otherwise its difficult.”

After their loss in midweek, Di Canio made it clear that his side must exacerbate the Saddlers’ weaknesses if they are to record a victory at the Banks’s Stadium.

“They (Walsall) have many youngsters,” he continued. “They have genuine enthusiasm, quality, desire - obviously next game they will maybe give 200%.”

“It’s obvious that we have to amplify their problems otherwise we cause problems to ourselves.

“I started to persuade my players that we cannot underestimate opponents because we can’t. Now we prove to ourselves that we can’t against any side. So I hope the next game will confirm that we improve professionally.”

THE STORY SO FAR

The Saddlers have had a mixed start to the new campaign. After a up-and-down August, they recorded five wins from seven in September. Since a 2-1 win at Bournemouth at the end of September, they have lost five and drawn four of their fixtures and currently sit 16th in League One.

LAST TIME OUT

Swindon have a good recent record at the Banks’s Stadium with two wins and only one defeat from their last five visits. Danny Wilson’s side won 2-1 on their last visit in September 2010 with goals from Alan Sheehan and Vincent Pericard securing all three points.
