Match Preview

Saddlers cash in on Price move Walsall manager Dean Smith could hand a debut to Jason Price at home to fellow strugglers Bristol Rovers. The experienced striker has joined the Saddlers on a month's loan from Carlisle and may be pitched straight in for League One's bottom side. Richard Taundry and Manny Smith will be assessed before Smith names his squad. Midfielder Taundry, who recently returned from an ankle injury, and centre-back Smith both missed Tuesday`s 1-1 draw with Oldham having picked up knocks during training on Monday. Striker Darren Byfield had hoped to return this month after a long-term ankle injury but is set to miss out again. Bristol Rovers manager Dave Penney could hand Rene Howe his debut. Howe has signed a one-month loan deal from Peterborough and is in contention to make his debut. However, Penney is without Danny Coles and Chris Lines. Defender Coles serves the third game of his four-match suspension following his sending-off against Carlisle while midfielder Lines collected his 10th booking of the season last week and is also banned. Goalkeeper Luke Daniels and defender Dave McCracken have impressed since being given their chances in the starting line-up and are set to continue as the Pirates look to extend their unbeaten run to three games. Young midfielder Charlie Clough has joined Weymouth on a month's loan.

Match Report

Saddlers hit six Walsall skipper Andy Butler scored twice as the Saddlers kept alive their hopes of avoiding relegation by hammering fellows in distress Bristol Rovers 6-1. The former Huddersfield defender won the man-of-the-match award as Walsall scored six for the first time in a league game at their 20-year-old stadium in their first win in six matches. New striker Jason Price, on loan from Carlisle, missed a chance for Walsall before Butler opened the scoring with a header from Matt Richards' free-kick. Rovers missed a couple of reasonable opportunities to draw level before Walsall increased their lead in the 34th minute when Mathew Gill, on loan from Norwich, drove in a flick from Jon Macken and a minute from half time Julian Gray made it three with a cracking volley following a corner. Rovers made a couple of changes at half-time and one of the subs, Scott Davies, set up Jeff Hughes to pull one back in the 48th minute, but two minutes later their hopes were dashed when Richards notched his eighth of the season with a 25-yard drive. Alex Nicholls volleyed number five from Macken's pass and Butler completed the rout with a header from Gill's corner in the 73rd minute.
