CITY can expect a very confident Walsall to head for West Yorkshire tomorrow.

The Saddlers certainly will not be fazed by the Valley Parade surroundings after claiming a surprise FA Cup victory at Sunderland in midweek.

Dean Keates’s side shocked the Black Cats in their second round replay with a stunning strike from midfielder Liam Kinsella.

That ended Sunderland’s 16-game unbeaten run and made it back-to-back wins for Walsall after the 2-1 win over West Midlands rivals Coventry last week.

It was only a second senior goal for Kinsella. Bizarrely both have been scored past former Bantams stopper Jon McLaughlin, who was also in the net for Burton on the previous occasion.

And Kinsella believes 10th-placed Walsall can round off a great week with another success at Valley Parade.

He said: “We’ve got two wins on the bounce and hopefully we can take that into Saturday.

“Bradford have got a good fan base up there but hopefully we’ll do well against them and get the three points.

“They’re battling for points, being bottom of the table, but we’re fighting for every point we can get so hopefully we can get all three.

“We’re building winning momentum so we’re going to go there full of confidence.”

That is based on the impressive performance at the Stadium of Light where Walsall more than held their own against a surprisingly flat Sunderland.

Former Wrexham boss Keates will keep opposite number David Hopkin guessing with how the visitors are likely to set up.

He switched to a flat back four on Tuesday, having played three centre halves against the Sky Blues.

Kinsella, who is relishing a switch to centre midfield after featuring at right back for previous manager Jon Whitney, insists the players are comfortable with the changes.

He said: “The players know what to do, no matter the formation we play, but the 4-4-2 we did well with.

“Our wingers got at the full-backs and we put on a really strong performance to get through to the next round.”
