Later this evening Walsall Football Club will play host to Preston North End in the Second Leg of the Johnstone's Paint Trophy - Northern Area Final.

A trio of Walsall Football Club legends will be on hand to cheer the boys on as they look to secure a spot at the competitions final, which is to be played at Wembley Stadium on Sunday, 22nd March.

Jimmy Walker, Darren Wrack and Dean Keates, who have amassed over 1,100 Saddlers appearances between them, will be in attendance for tonight's match and are also set to be in the Stadium Suite ahead of kick off to take part in a Q&A session, hosted by Dale Moon.

Wacka is the club's record appearance holder with a total of 534 outings to his name. He was part of promotion-winning teams in 1994/95, 1998/99 and 2000/01, via the play-offs at the Millennium Stadium. 

He was also involved in the Saddlers' run to the Area Final of this competition in 1997/98 and 1998/99. 

Dean Keates meanwhile is a local lad who came through the ranks to appear over 250 times for the club. 

Starring in our promotion campaigns of 1998/99, 2000/01 and 2006/07, as he helped the club lift only the second League title in our history when we secured the League Two Championship in dramatic fashion courtesy of his late leveller at Swindon Town. 

Completing the trio is Darren Wrack, another committed and long-serving player who made a total of 383 appearances for the club, was a firm favourite amongst the fans.

Spending a decade with the club, he helped us secure promotion in 1998/99, 2000/01 and 2006/07, having overcome a serious injury during the previous campaign.
