6 May 2022

Swindon Town will be looking to extend their season when they take on Walsall at the Bank's Stadium in the EFL Sky Bet League Two on Saturday.

Ben Garner's team know three points tomorrow will secure a place in the Playoffs, and maybe more if results elsewhere go their way.

It has been an outstanding season no matter what happens, and the Reds will be looking to finish on a high with over 3,500 away fans set to be in attendance.

While Walsall have nothing to play for this season, they have won five out of their last six games at home and they will want to sign off this season with a win.

Kick-Off is at 3pm.

Let's get you set for the game...

A WORD FROM BOTH CAMPS

Michael Flynn, Walsall Head Coach: “I want them to finish on a positive.

“I want them to give everything because there’s no excuses of resting them for the next game, they’ll have a few weeks off before returning for pre-season so there’s no excuse not to leave everything on the pitch tomorrow.

“I’m looking forward to the game for all our supporters. Whatever happens to Swindon is not my concern, they’ve got to look after themselves, we’ll be trying to win the game and what will be, will be come five o’clock tomorrow."

Ben Garner, Swindon Town Head Coach: "They've got a good squad there. They've got some good players and their home form has been really good, but they just haven't quite clicked away from home in recent weeks.

"I'm sure Michael will have a lot of optimism looking ahead to next season now in terms of building what he wants there.

"It will be a tough game. We will need to go and play well in order to achieve the result and hopefully we can do that.

"I think they will provide lots of challenges. There is good quality throughout their squad, good characters within their squad and a really good manager."
