Match Preview

Taundry out for Saddlers Richard Taundry will miss Walsall's home clash against Hartlepool. Right-back Taundry was forced off in the first half of Tuesday night's superb 3-2 home victory over promotion-chasing Sheffield United nursing a hamstring injury and is set to miss out for the foreseeable future. Winger Jamie Paterson also hobbled off just after half-time carrying an ankle knock but it is hoped he will pass a late fitness test. Defender Lee Beevers (head) and striker George Bowerman (cramp) also sustained injury against the Blades but are okay, while midfielder Adam Chambers - who has missed the last three matches with a heel problem - will again be monitored. The Saddlers go into the clash unbeaten in five but will be wary of a mid-table Pools side who have claimed more points on their travels than Sheffield United, Sheffield Wednesday and Huddersfield. Hartlepool could be without James Poole, Gary Liddle and Luke James. Striker Poole, who has only just returned from long-term injury, was forced off in the midweek defeat at Huddersfield with a thigh injury. Midfielder Liddle is still struggling with the leg injury that has kept him out of the last four matches and teenage striker James has been nursing a back problem in recent weeks. Another forward, Adam Boyd, is hoping for a recall to the starting line-up after being named on the substitutes' bench for the last five matches, while James Brown, who replaced Poole at half-time at Huddersfield, is expected to start. Skipper Sam Collins, who celebrated his 500th club appearance in midweek, will continue his partnership with Peter Hartley in central defence. Manager Neale Cooper has no other new injury or suspension problems as his side bid to close the eight-point gap between themselves and the top six.

Match Report

Flinders denies Saddlers Walsall extended their unbeaten run to six games with a goalless draw against Hartlepool after failing to find a way past outstanding goalkeeper Scott Flinders at the Banks's Stadium. The Saddlers failed to take their chances as Sam Mantom, in his second game on loan from West Brom, completely miskicked from Will Grigg's cross with the goal at his mercy late on. Hartlepool had to make a late change when skipper and central defender Sam Collins picked up an injury in the warm-up and was replaced by 19-year-old Josh Rowbotham. Walsall lost defender Ollie Lancashire with a head injury in the 24th minute of a first half where chances were rare until stoppage time when striker George Bowerman twice failed with reasonable chances to head past Flinders. In the second half, Pools concentrated on keeping Walsall out and created only one opening themselves. From a quick throw-in Antony Sweeney burst into the box and saw his fierce shot blocked by home keeper David Grof.
