Walsall Advertiser Column - Thursday 22nd February 2018

Thursday 8th February 2018 - by Mikee Evans

Well another point closer to safety was achieved at Gillingham on Saturday but it didnít sound like the most inspiring of performances but that point could be useful come the end of the season. Well done to all of our fellow Saddlers who made the long journey to Kent.

A tough looking run of fixtures looms starting with Blackburn on Saturday. Our visitors will be backed by a large following and anything we could glean from this match would be a bonus. The run of tough games could have been eased slightly with the postponement of the Wigan game Ė the third time this season we have lost a Saturday fixture due to League One teams performing better in The F.A Cup than we did.

Tickets for the trip to Shrewsbury went on sale this week and the prices are more than reasonable, so Iím confident that we can take our usual large following there, and have a good day out.

Some excellent news came out of Bescot earlier this week with goalkeeper Liam Roberts signing a new contract that will keep him at the club (transfer windows permitting) until 2020. I was really impressed with him on his debut against Millwall a couple of years ago and he has come on leaps and bounds this season. Not bad for a lad who we released initially back in 2014.

Finally some sad news reached us this week with the news that the Walsall Advertiser is going to cease publication after 40 years. We have always had excellent coverage in this paper and it will be sadly missed. I used to deliver it to pay for Walsall games as a youngsters. Hope all the staff, especially our brilliant reporter Michael Beardmore will be okay.
