Saddlers new-boys set to face Argyle
Reuben Reid and Jon Macken are poised to make their Walsall debuts against Plymouth.
The duo arrived at the Banks's Stadium on Thursday afternoon to bolster boss Chris Hutchings' attacking options.
Winger Reid, 22, has joined on a five-month loan deal from midlands neighbours West Brom, while veteran striker Macken has signed a one-year contract.
Darren Byfield and Steve Jones are most likely to make way for the new arrivals.
Ryan McGivern and Oliver Lancashire returned to the Saddlers' defence for the 2-1 win at Brentford last weekend and will retain their places in the starting XI.
Hutchings has a fully-fit squad at his disposal and will be hoping his side can improve on their poor home form so far this season, following defeats against MK Dons in League One and Tranmere in the Carling Cup.
Plymouth manager Peter Reid is sweating over the fitness of Craig Noone and Reda Johnson ahead of Saturday's trip to Walsall.
Midfielder Noone picked up an injury in training but is expected to be fit for the clash at the Banks's Stadium.
However, defender Johnson is struggling to be in contention. The Benin international has not trained this week, which could pave the way for 17-year-old Curtis Nelson to receive a first-team opportunity.
Nelson impressed for the reserves in midweek and Reid singled him out for praise.
The Argyle boss said: "Nelson was terrific and he is with us all the time now. He has handled training really well and he will definitely be in the squad [for Walsall]."
Walsall conquer Plymouth
A brilliant debut goal by striker Reuben Reid gave Walsall their second successive league win as they sent Plymouth to a first loss with a 2-1 win.
Reid, who this week joined the Saddlers on loan from West Brom went through the Argyle defence with a sparkling solo run on 70 minutes and drilled his shot past keeper David Button.
That ended Walsall's unhappy start of two successive home defeats - one in the cup - and they had to come from behind after Plymouth had taken the lead on 30 minutes - Joe Mason turning quickly to drive a low shot under home keeper Jonny Brain from a cross by Luke Summerfield.
Walsall winger Steve Jones had been a problem for the Pilgrims and hit the post when clean through in the 20th minute but just before half-time he limped off with a knee injury.
Walsall were level in the 53rd minute, substitute Paul Marshall, signed from Manchester City, heading a fine goal from a cross by Julian Gray.
Mason had another goal ruled out for offside as Argyle tried to hit back but in the 70th minute Reid capped a man of the match performance with his stunning winner for Walsall.
Plymouth centre-back Kari Arnason was sent off in stoppage time for a foul on Alex Nicholls.
