Time at Club:
Walsall are managed by Jon Whitney who took interim charge of the club in March 2016, before being awarded the job on a permanent basis. The Saddlers missed out on automatic promotion by just a single point in 2015/16, and then suffered further heartbreak by losing in the play-offs, but they could only finish 14th last season.
Walsall have played their games at the Bescot Stadium since 1990 and the ground currently holds upwards of 11,000 fans. it is well known as a tight stadium with he fans on top of the pitch which of course brings great atmosphere to the stadium on match days.
A mixed set of recent results has seen Walsall collect wins versus Tranmere Rovers, Plymouth Argyle, Northampton Town & Bury while suffering adverse results at Fleetwood Town, Scunthorpe United & AFC Wimbledon. Draws against Scunthorpe United, Bradford City & Oldham Athletic has seen them show mid-table form at best.
