Supporters Set to Hold Protests During Saturday's Posh Clash

1:30 pm Friday, 26 April 2019
As the Saddlers prepare for this weekend's must-win clash with Peterborough United, a group of Walsall supporters have announced plans to hold protests during the match, with fans set to turn their backs on the action after eighteen minutes of play before exiting Banks's Stadium two-minutes from full-time.
The Saddlers' 2018/19 campaign has gone from a surprising undefeated opening to dismal run of draws and defeats, resulting in the team sitting just one place above the foot of the table, four points from safety, and, with two games remaining, facing an uphill battle if they are to remain in League One for another campaign.

Regardless of any potential relegation, the club's board has grow increasingly distant from the club's fanbase and are shouldn't be surprised by fresh supporter protests. Hopefully this will stir the powers that be into action, as there is plenty of work to be done.

The club is expected to announce the appointment of a new manager in the days following next weekend's season-ending clash with Shrewsbury Town. Former Rochdale and Barnsley boss Keith Hill being the overwhelming favourite.
