Match Preview

Saddlers to monitor duo Martin Devaney and Darren Byfield will be assessed ahead of Walsall`s home clash against Peterborough. Winger Devaney missed Saturday`s 1-0 defeat at Huddersfield with a late ankle injury and is battling to be fit for a game in which the Saddlers really need to put in a performance in front of their own fans. Striker Byfield saw his lengthy battle to recover from a knee problem suffer a slight setback last week but he is now back on track and hoping to play a part against Posh. On-loan centre-back Andrew Davies continues to miss out, however, with a tear to his thigh muscle. Goalkeeper Jimmy Walker was signed on Friday and duly made his debut at the Galpharm Stadium, and the fans` favourite will remain between the sticks as he makes his first competitive appearance for the Saddlers at the Banks`s Stadium since May 2004. Peterborough boss Gary Johnson will hand a debut to Lewin Nyatanga. Nyatanga has been drafted in on loan from Johnson`s former side Bristol City in the wake of Saturday`s damaging 3-0 home defeat at the hands of runaway leaders Brighton. The centre-half is likely to start which will mean one of record signing Ryan Bennett or Kelvin Langmead will make way. At the other end of the field Posh will be without playmaker George Boyd, who starts a three-match ban after seeing red against the Seagulls. Wide man Tommy Rowe picked up a groin injury at Brentford two weeks ago and is ruled out but forward Lee Tomlin is back from suspension.

Match Report

Posh keep pace with top two Peterborough boosted their promotion hopes with a hard-fought 3-1 win at bottom club Walsall. Posh did not find it as easy as the score line suggests, with visiting goalkeeper Joe Lewis making crucial saves at important points in the game. It was Walsall's sixth home league defeat and a section of the fans called for manager Chris Hutchings to quit. Walsall made a bright start with Liam Dickinson, on loan from Barnsley, having a shot blocked on his debut, while Ryan McGivern had a fierce shot well saved by Lewis. But Peterborough took the lead in the 15th minute with defender Ryan Bennett heading in an Arran Davies free-kick and two minutes later Davies himself added the second when firing past James Walker after beating a defender. Walsall thought they were back in the game in the 53rd minute when Julian Gray headed his third of the season from Martin Devaney's cross, but two minutes later their hopes died as Kelvin Langmead hit Posh's third goal from a Davies corner.
