The View From The Opposition: Walsall

MILLWALL made it eight games unbeaten in all competitions when Steve Morison scored a late winner on Sunday to knock Watford out of the FA Cup.

It’s back to League One business for the Lions tonight as they face a Walsall side that hasn’t lost in three games and came from two goals down to rescue a 3-3 draw at Bury at the weekend.

Lucas Ball spoke to Mitchell Harvey ahead of the clash with the Saddlers at The Den.

What made you support Walsall?: All my family are Walsall fans and when I was six my dad took me to a pre-season friendly against Aston Villa, and ever since it hooked me. Wouldn't change it for the world following Walsall.

What do you think of Walsall's business in January’s transfer window?: I think it’s gone okay, in all fairness. We extended Scott Laird's loan from Scunthorpe to the end of the season which is a massive plus as he was a crucial player in the first half of the season for us.



On Tuesday, we loaned a winger from Wolves (Will Randall) but I'm not too sure why. We haven't been playing a system which has been involving out-and-out wingers so it's a strange one for me but we will have to wait and see.

Finally, a young lad from Celtic came in, Eoghan O'Connell, who is a centre-half and has been terrific in the three games he's played. It looks like he will only get better so it has been a decent transfer window in my eyes.

Last time out you drew 3-3 with Bury and extended your unbeaten run to three games. Do you expect to continue that in the Millwall game?: It will be very, very tough for us tomorrow. You're going to be very high on confidence after your FA Cup win against Watford. It will be a tough one and could go either way.

Who will Millwall have to watch out for? And, likewise, who will Walsall be wary of?: Ehrun Otzumer- our best player in my opinion. He is very talented and quick-minded. Often finds himself five steps ahead of our team, he can be a massive danger.

Your threat, Lee Gregory. I don't know much of your team but last year and this he always seems to pop up with a goal or two and some very good ones from what I've seen. A born finisher by the looks of it.

And finally, a score prediction?: Being biased: Millwall 1-2 Walsall

As a football fan: Millwall 2-2 Walsall
