Match Preview

Cuvelier in line for Saddlers bow Walsall could hand a debut to teenage midfielder Florent Cuvelier when they welcome Notts County to the Banks's Stadium. The 19-year-old Belgian youth international penned a one-month loan deal from Barclays Premier League club Stoke on Friday and may slot straight into manager Dean Smith's starting XI. The Saddlers will definitely be without Claude Gnakpa after the 28-year-old French midfielder was released by the club. Gnakpa has since joined Scottish Premier League side Inverness. Smith has no injury or suspension concerns as he bids to move his side away from the npower League One relegation zone. The West Midlands club are only above the final four places on goal difference and would slip below Scunthorpe - the side they face on Saturday - should they lose to the Magpies by a three-goal margin. Kieron Freeman comes back into the reckoning for Notts County. Freeman, on loan from city rivals Nottingham Forest, was ineligible for the FA Cup fourth-round tie against Stevenage on Saturday having already featured in the competition for the Reds in the previous round. Julian Kelly made a timely return from a calf injury to replace Freeman at full-back at the Lamex Stadium. Magpies manager Martin Allen must decide whether to recall the Forest teenager or stick with Kelly. Jonathan Forte made his debut against Stevenage following his arrival on loan from Southampton but the striker was replaced at half-time. It remains to be seen whether Forte will start on Tuesday night or whether Allen will recall Karl Hawley.

Match Report

Hughes goal sinks Saddlers A well-taken Lee Hughes goal gave Notts County their first win in nine league games as they beat Walsall 1-0 at the Banks's Stadium. Hughes turned quickly on to a header from Ben Burgess and buried a low drive for his 10th goal of the season. Walsall offered little threat in the first half, with their first shot at goal being a tame effort from Jon Macken. Saddlers goalkeeper James Walker, celebrating his record 530th appearance for the club on his first home game since breaking Colin Harrison's record, had to go off after half-time with a hamstring injury, but replacement David Grof was rarely troubled. Walsall had a goal by George Bowerman controversially ruled out by referee Dean Whitestone for a Manny Smith foul on Stuart Nelson in the 75th minute. The Saddlers have now won only once in 15 league games.
