PROMOTION CHARGE ON FOR BOTH
AFTER both of these sides finished last season in the bottom half of League One, you would have been hard pressed to find too many people tipping them for promotion.
But on this evidence, both could well be there or thereabouts, even if it is a tad early to judge.
Walsall are flying at the moment and if they can hold on to top scorer Tom Bradshaw – interesting several Championship sides while Swindon have already seen a bid knocked back – then the top six is no impossibility for Dean Smith’s troops this season.
And as Tony Mowbray admitted, defeat was a reality check for City, who would still probably have done enough to beat most sides. They just ran into a team in even better form than them.
