Pre-Match News & Views

With a five-game unbeaten run to build upon, the Saddlers arrive at this weekend's match in fine form and in search of three more points.
After brushing Oldham aside in midweek, the Reds have so far avoided defeat in the month of October and will be hoping to add to their run of form when they welcome Barrow to the Banks's.
Following a tough start to their 2021/22 campaign, Matthew Taylor's team has begun to find its feet, with recent performances being in start contrast to those they entered during the opening weeks of the season.
The injury list has finally begun to ease, with several of the team's consistent performers seeing light at the end of their respective injury tunnels, adding some much-needed fresh legs to the manager's squad.
Opponents Barrow are also enjoying a decent spell of form and have lost just one of their last six in League Two, although they haven't won in their last three league games, including a 3-1 defeat to Darrell Clarke's Port Vale.

Head to Head

The Saddlers and Bluebirds have met on thirty-four previous occasions, and it's Walsall who hold an overall lead, having won fourteen times compared to Barrow's eleven.

There have also been a total of nine draws over the history of the fixture, a history which began at Fellows Park on Saturday, 4th February 1922 as the two sides faced-off in a Division Three (North) clash which saw the Saddlers secure the win by three-goals-to-one.

Man in the Middle

The EFL has confirmed that Andy Haines, who is based in Tyne & Wear, will be the man in the middle, whilst Conor Farrell and Marc Wilson have been named assistant referees. Thomas Parsons will act as Fourth Official.
