PRO­MO­TION CHARGE ON FOR BOTH

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE ONE -

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.
