Head to Head: v Bristol Rovers

4:45 pm Thursday, 4 October 2018
Dean Keates' Saddlers are back in action this weekend as they travel to the Memorial Stadium where they will take on Bristol Rovers in their twelfth league outing of the season. Here, we take a brief look at the Head-to-Head statistics.
Walsall and Bristol Rovers have met on one-hundred previous occasions, and it's the Pirates who hold a narrow overall lead having tasted victory forty times compared to the Saddlers' thirty-eight.

There have also been twenty-two draws between the two sides who first met in a Division Three (South) match which took place at the Eastville Stadium on Saturday, 27th August 1927, and saw Rovers win by five-goals-to-two.

Unfortunately for the Walsall they would go on to lose the next five meetings and wouldn't defeat their opponents until their eighth encounter, which took place in November 1930, and saw the Saddlers win by four-goals-to-two.

In more modern times, Walsall have lost just one of the last eight league meetings but none of the last two as they lost and drew the two most recent clashes.
