Butler worry for Saddlers
Skipper Andy Butler is again touch and go for the visit of already-relegated Bury as Walsall look to keep their play-off dreams going until the final day.
The centre-back missed last weekend's 1-1 draw at Scunthorpe with a foot injury and continues to be rated as 50/50 ahead of the visit of the Shakers.
Fellow defender Andy Taylor, however, is definitely ruled out once more with the hamstring problem which sidelined him at Glanford Park.
Manager Dean Smith has no new injury or suspension problems, with striker Will Grigg having suffered no ill-effects upon his return from a hamstring injury against the Iron - against whom he netted his 20th goal of the season.
The Saddlers are four points outside the play-off places and need to beat Bury, as well as hope sixth-placed Swindon drop points at home to Stevenage, if they are to have any chance of taking their pursuit to the last weekend of the season.
Bury manager Kevin Blackwell will be able to add defenders Efe Sodje and Ethan Ebanks-Landell to his threadbare squad.
The Shakers responded to having their relegation confirmed by defeat to Oldham last weekend with a 2-1 come-from-behind win at Scunthorpe in midweek, despite Blackwell only being able to name David Healy and rookie striker Tom Pratt on the bench.
Veteran centre-back Sodje has completed a two-game ban while on-loan Wolves youngster Ebanks-Landell is back from a bout of illness.
Craig Fagan has one more game of a three-match suspension to serve but the former Hull forward will be back in contention for the final outing of the season against Yeovil.
Andy Bishop (foot), Craig Jones (thigh/hamstring) and skipper Steven Schumacher (hernia) will not play again this term.
Long-term absentees Phil Picken (knee), Adam Lockwood (groin) and Shane Byrne (blood disorder) are also targeting pre-season but are back in light training.
