Saddlers at full strength
Walsall boast a fully-fit squad for the visit of Bournemouth.
Defenders Andy Taylor (groin) and Dean Holden (ankle) are both back in full training and are available for selection.
However, manager Dean Smith will be hard pushed to make any changes to his XI after last weekend's impressive 3-1 victory at Preston.
On-loan goalkeeper Ian McLoughlin made his debut in the clash and is now set for his home bow at the Banks's Stadium.
Midfielder Florent Cuvelier continues to receive treatment on his hamstring injury at parent club Stoke and is a number of weeks away from fitness, but his loan has now come to an end, with the Saddlers weighing up another potential deal when he is back up to full speed.
The clash sees two of npower League One's form teams go head-to-head.
Bournemouth will be without top scorer Lewis Grabban as they look to bounce back from their midweek FA Cup exit.
The Cherries were beaten 1-0 by Wigan in the third round replay on Tuesday night to end an 18-game unbeaten run since Eddie Howe returned to the south coast.
Grabban's knee injury rules him out of the trip while Josh McQuiod (calf) and Eunan O'Kane (foot) are both doubtful.
Southampton defender Dan Seaborne, who signed a loan deal with the club until the end of the season on Thursday, could come into the squad.
The 25-year-old, who was on the bench against Chelsea in the 2-2 draw on Wednesday night, began his career at Exeter before moving to St Mary's.
This season has seen him enjoy a loan spell in the npower Championship with Charlton where he made seven appearances - the last coming on Boxing Day.
One player set to return to the side is David James who has watched Shwan Jalal play in the cup competitions this season.
