Recent respective form guides

Bury's dreadful home form has resulted in just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. While Shakers have scored 5, a worringly large 11 have been leaked at the other end.

Walsall's away form is none too clever either, winning 2 of the last six, but losing the other 4. While the Saddlers have hit 5 goals, 10 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Bury are stuck down in the relegation zone of npower League One with a return of just 8 points from their 14 games thus far.
