AFTER Hearts v Hibs bored us tears for 80 minutes or so how will we cope with tonight's live TV offering from the Midlands.
The Edinburgh derby never lived up to its billing but at least the final 10 minutes was more interesting with both sides coming close to scoring.
This may be a League One encounter but this game will have to be a shocker to be any worse than the SPL fare we were given last night.
At first glance Walsall look a decent shout against a side without a win in 12 outings but in reality both are struggling sides.
Portsmouth only had 15 players available for the midweek trip to Swindon and it was no surprise when they crashed 5-0 but Guy Whittingham's men held out for an hour before conceding.
On-loan striker Paul Benson returns after being unavailable to face his parent club while midfielder Brian Howard and defenders Ricardo Rocha and Gabor Gyepes are fighting to be fit.
Experienced new signing David Connolly could make his full debut in attack and it's possible he could make a difference.
Walsall have moved away fron he drop zone with three wins in four so if they can continue in that vein they should edge this ine although 10-11 (various) is shorter than I'd like.
Both teams have scored in the past four meetings and a repeat pays 8-11 at Coral.
Four of Walsall's last six and four of Pompey's last five have gone over 2.5 goals so that's worth a look at 4-5 with Ladbrokes even though last night's match puts me off slightly from backing the overs.
