Today's Betting Tips for Stockport vs Walsall

Stockport are favourites to beat League Two rivals Walsall when the sides collide in the third round of the FA Cup on Sunday. Read our top predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.

Stockport to Win

Stockport and Walsall are familiar foes having met just a little over a week ago in League Two, and County’s display in that encounter should hand them the impetus they need to push for more success against The Saddlers in Sunday’s cup tie. Stockport were comfortable 2-0 winners when they visited Walsall in December and back on home soil, The Hatters should be able to produce a repeat performance with their supporters driving them on. Side with the hosts here.

Kyle Wootton to Score Anytime

Kyle Wootton was Stockport’s match-winner in December when the attacker netted a fine brace to gun Walsall down, and having punished The Saddlers’ defence twice already, Wootton will back himself to make a similar impact on Sunday. The 26-year-old has notched seven times overall for County this season since his move from Notts County last summer and Wooten can bolster his tally even further with a goal in the cup this weekend.
