WHAT'S ON AGAINST WALSALL

12 September 2016

Take a look at everything going on at the Mem tomorrow night!

Tomorrow evening, Rovers welcome Walsall to The Memorial Stadium. Last time the sides met in 2001, Walsall thrashed Dave Penney’s Rovers 6-1.

Andy Butler headed in to put the hosts ahead and Matthew Gill smashed in a low shot to double the advantage.

Julian Gray volleyed in to put the Saddlers 3-0 up at half-time, before Jeff Hughes pulled one back just after the break with a low strike.

Matt Richards struck from 25 yards to restore Walsall's lead, before Alex Nicholls' volley and a second Butler header completed the rout.
