Bradford v Walsall preview: Visitors need point to secure League One safety
Last Updated: 30/04/18 5:59pm
Walsall take on Bradford City at Valley Parade on Tuesday night knowing that just a point will guarantee them their place in Sky Bet League One for next season.
Dean Keates' side could be unchanged for the game after Saturday's last-gasp 1-0 win over Northampton Town, although Kory Roberts could start ahead of Liam Kinsella after playing at the weekend. Meanwhile, midfielder Erhun Oztumer is also expected to retain his place at the expense of Julien Ngoy.
However, Bradford will be without Kai Bruenker for the match, with the striker set to miss the last two games of the season due to ankle ligament damage. The 23-year-old German is waiting to learn the full extent of the injury he suffered in Saturday's home defeat to Southend United.
The Bantams will also be without Tyrell Robinson, who has been ruled out for the rest of the campaign with a shoulder injury he suffered in April, while midfielder Jake Reeves (groin) is definitely out.
The Bantams have lost just one of the last seven league meetings between these two sides (W2 D4), a 2-1 defeat in November 2015.
Walsall have managed just one victory in their last seven league trips to Valley Parade (D3 L3), winning 2-0 in March 2014 thanks to a Craig Westcarr brace.
Bradford have won each of their last two league games on a Tuesday, after failing to win any of the previous seven this season (D3 L4).
Since successive away victories in December against Doncaster and Wimbledon, Walsall have managed just one win in their last 12 on the road (D4 L7).
Simon Grayson has won three of his four home league matches against Walsall as a manager (L1), his only defeat coming as Leeds United boss in February 2010.
