League Two odds and tips as struggling draw specialists Walsall host promotion-chasers Forest Green Rovers.
Walsall dug deep for a 0-0 draw away to the division's form side Leyton Orient last time out, in a tight game of few chances at either end - the Sadlers had one shot on target, and it was the only one in the game. It was their 19th draw of the season - the most of any side in the division - and fourth in a row, three of which have been goalless.
13 of those 19 draws have come away from Banks's Stadium, however - on home soil, Walsall have failed to win their last nine outings, with six defeats and three draws. Only bottom-placed Grimsby have won fewer games than Brian Dutton's men, who seemingly know how to make games tight, digging deep and frustrating the opposition, but struggle to convert those into wins; just three goals scored in their last nine matches may well explain why.
Forest Green, meanwhile, are seriously faltering, having spent the vast majority of the campaign in one of the top three places. They've fallen to fifth, although remain within two points of the automatic promotion spots, but have lost their last three matches and have taken just one point from the last 15 available. Last time out they were second best in a 2-0 defeat at home to a Salford outfit that came to the New Lawn in similarly poor form. Mark Cooper will still have ambitions on closing the gap on those above them, while soon enough they could be facing the prospect of dropping out of the play-offs, given how tight and competitive the top half of the table remains.
Walsall are unbeaten in four meetings with Forest Green, who lost 6-0 on their last visit to Banks's Stadium back in November 2019. When these sides last met in the reverse fixture back in October, Forest Green came from behind to register a 1-1 draw.
