Match Preview

Same again for Saddlers Walsall boss Dean Smith has an unchanged squad at his disposal for the crucial visit of Charlton. Playmaker Emmanuel Ledesma serves the final game of his three-match suspension, meaning he will return for the trip to Southampton on the last day. Centre-back Clayton McDonald will miss the remainder of the campaign having dislocated his shoulder, while full-back Aaron Lescott remains sidelined with his knee ligament strain. The Saddlers go into their penultimate match of the campaign just one point above the drop zone, knowing victory would have a massive impact on their survival hopes ahead of their final day trip to St Mary`s. Defender Oliver Lancashire told the club`s official website: "We have to be positive. We go into the game determined to get the three points on offer. "We would have taken this position three months ago. It`s in our hands and we have to make sure we can finish the job off." Kyel Reid and Scott Wagstaff return to the Charlton squad. Reid is available after missing Monday's win over Rochdale through suspension and fellow winger Wagstaff has recovered from a hamstring injury. Midfielder Jose Semedo is still banned after his dismissal against Bristol Rovers on Saturday, while skipper Christian Dailly's season came to a premature end three weeks ago courtesy of a five-match suspension for his third red card of the campaign. Goalkeeper Rob Elliot is fit after a knee injury but Millwall loanee John Sullivan looks to have done enough to keep his place. Winger Johnnie Jackson is back in training after an Achilles injury but is unlikely to be risked while full-back Kelly Youga (knee) and striker Joe Anyinsah (ankle) are still out.

Match Report

Saddlers survival to go to last day Walsall's brave fight to avoid relegation continued at the Banks's Stadium where they completed a league double over Charlton with a thoroughly deserved 2-0 win. The Addicks posed the first threat in the third minute when Paul Benson moved onto a cross from Nathan Eccleston and planted a header against the foot of a post. But Walsall took over after that and Charlton keeper Rob Elliot pulled of fine saves from Jon Macken and Jordan Cook to keep the visitors in the game. The Saddlers kept pushing forward and eventually took the lead in the 34th minute, 19-year-old Will Grigg driving in a low shot for his fourth goal of the season when Macken chested the ball down from Richard Taundry's cross. Walsall continued to pile on the pressure in the second half and a second almost came when Cook rattled the crossbar with a tremendous rising drive on the hour mark. It was all over, however, 12 minutes from the end, Cook and Macken combining and when Macken's shot rebounded to Julian Gray, the winger drilled home a low shot for his ninth of the season. It leaves Walsall still one point clear of Dagenham & Redbridge who occupy the final relegation berth heading into the last weekend.
