Heads musn't drop says Taylor

Lyle Taylor says that heads mustn't drop at Charlton after two consecutive defeats, although he admits that Walsall are no mugs: Need to maintain focus

Taylor complains that the pitch at the Ricoh was like a cow field, although that's what happens when you share a ground with egg chasers.

Walsall are currently 14th in the table, although third from bottom in the form table where Charlton are in ninth place. Away from home, the Saddlers have won four, drawn four and lost four. Charlton's home record is won eight, drawn two and lost two. Walsall have now been in League One since 2007.

Winger Ross Ginnelly has already left the Saddlers for his new club, Preston North End.

Typical odds are: Charlton 5/6; Draw, 14/5; Away, 15/4.

Referee Ross Joyce is the youngest referee in the Football League, having started at the age of 15. His reputation is a card happy referee who does not let the game flow and likes to be the centre of attention.
