Walsall vs Leicester, FA Cup live: Score and latest updates from 4th round matchGood afternoon and welcome to FA Cup weekend. And today we kick off with Walsall against Leicester. Will we see a giantkilling? Walsall co-chairman Leigh Pomlett is certainly hoping so and believes the Saddlers are finally a united club. A takeover by American investors the Trivela Group has helped transform the club, who also bought their ground from former owner Jeff Bonser last month. Walsall's resurgence on the pitch under boss Michael Flynn has them four points behind the top seven in League Two, with two games in hand, after he replaced Matt Taylor 11 months ago with the club 18th.
"Since I joined the board the ambition of the club has changed and the ability to realise that ambition, rather than having ambition without any substance to actually achieve it. "Beating Leicester, there is a slim chance but there is a chance. "Last summer's takeover marked a new, promising era for the club after years of stagnation and relegation to League Two, with the backdrop of a fractured and disenchanted fanbase. In December the club also bought the freehold of the stadium to end their rent payments - around £500, 000 a year - to former owner Bonser. "I made it a prerequisite that you cannot buy a single share from me unless you were prepared to, or you had the ability to, buy the stadium, " said Pomlett.
