FOR all Wycombe's woes, Wanderers can leapfrog Walsall in the table with victory on Saturday.

But with just one win in nine games, it is desperate times for Gary Waddock's side as they look to claw their season from the brink of despair.

Walsall boss Dean Smith will say his side are equally desperate for the points having won just two games all season.

You have to go back six league games to find the Saddlers' last victory, a 2-0 win at Bournemouth, and to the first day of the season for their only other.

But they have steadied the ship in recent weeks and have picked up three draws in their last three games.

Like Blues, hitting the back of the net has been a problem for Walsall. William Grigg is their top scorer with just three goals.

But they have an excellent record against Wanderers and you have to go back six games and to October, 2000 to find the last Wycombe win in this fixture.
