Match Preview

Daniels set for debut New Bristol Rovers boss Dave Penney will hand Luke Daniels his debut when Walsall visit the Memorial Stadium. The West Brom goalkeeper will take over from another loanee, Mikkel Andersen, after his six-month deal from Reading expired this week. Penney has no injury or suspension problems ahead of his first game in charge. The former Doncaster and Oldham boss will be hoping to make an immediate impact on a team that have just one win in 12 games in all competitions and currently sit four points from safety in the League One table. Winger Mark Wright has joined Shrewsbury on a permanent deal after spending the first half of the season on loan at the Greenhous Stadium. Walsall caretaker manager Dean Smith may keep faith with the same XI who started Saturday`s thrilling 3-3 draw at Tranmere. The rock-bottom Saddlers scored twice in the closing minutes at Prenton Park to salvage a valuable point and have the chance to build on that against a Rovers side just four points above them. Smith has no new injury concerns and will check on both goalkeeper Jimmy Walker (hamstring) and midfielder Richard Taundry (ankle), who have an outside chance ahead of the trip to the Memorial Stadium. Both have been missing of late, as has striker Darren Byfield (knee) who continues to work his way towards a return later this month.

Match Report

Lescott snatches point for Saddlers Walsall full-back Aaron Lescott denied Dave Penney a winning start as Bristol Rovers boss with a late equaliser in a 2-2 draw against his old club. The full-back sent a fierce drive past Luke Daniels from Jon Macken's lay-off after 84 minutes to give Walsall a deserved share of the spoils. Will Grigg shot the Saddlers ahead from Darryl Westlake's cross in the fourth minute, but the introduction of Jo Kuffour as a substitute by Penney at the start of the second half changed the game. Kuffour set up Will Hoskins to fire home his 14th goal of the season after 52 minutes and then volleyed Rovers in front from a Hoskins pass two minutes later. Both teams created plenty of chances in an entertaining League One basement battle, but it was the 130 Walsall fans who went home happier with the result.
