Footymad preview History of the Scunthorpe United v Walsall fixture

Walsall pack their bags to visit Scunthorpe United at Glanford Park Stadium on Saturday afternoon, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Saddlers will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them lose 9 and win only 3 of the 17 games.

The previous match played between the two at Glanford Park Stadium was within the last three years, in March 2009, where the two sides shared the spoils courtesy of a 1 - 1 final scoreline in a League One match.
