Match Preview

Saddlers hampered by Gill absence Walsall will be forced to make at least one change for the visit of Rochdale following Matt Gill`s return to parent club Norwich. The on-loan central midfielder saw his month-long stay at the Banks`s Stadium come to an end with last weekend`s 2-0 defeat at Colchester. That means manager Dean Smith has a decision to make as to who fills the void, with Richard Taundry favourite to move inside from the right and forward Alex Nicholls revert back out wide. Fit-again Jason Price, who returned to the bench against Colchester after a sore Achilles, would in turn come in to take his place alongside Jon Macken in attack. Darren Byfield has resumed full training after five months out with a knee injury, although this weekend is likely to come too soon for the seasoned striker. Next Saturday`s trip to Swindon is a more realistic date for his involvement. Rochdale manager Keith Hill has no major concerns ahead of the game. Midfielder Brian Barry-Murphy sustained a cut above his eye in the recent home victory over Sheffield Wednesday and was replaced after just 11 minutes by Matty Done. He looks certain to be available but Done, who had a hand in both goals in a highly impressive performance, is pushing hard for a starting berth. Hill has no other injury or suspension concerns as his men seek to further enhance their play-off credentials against the struggling Saddlers. The victory over the Owls, which maintained their play-off push, was Rochdale's last match after their home clash with Southampton last weekend was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch at Spotland.

Match Report

Saddlers and Dale in stalemate Rochdale extended their unbeaten run to 10 games and damaged Walsall's hopes of avoiding relegation in a goalless draw at the Banks's Stadium. The Saddlers dominated the first half but missed injured striker Jon Macken and looked lightweight in front of goal. Alex Nicholls sent a volley straight into the hands of Dale keeper Owain Fon Williams in the 25th minute, while teenage striker Will Grigg skied a simple chance high over the bar when Nicholls had teed him up near the penalty spot. Rochdale improved in the second half and could have nicked the extra points on the break, Matty Done sending a diving header wide from a perfect cross by Gary Jones. Saddlers `keeper James Walker also made a fine 70th-minute save to deny Jones before he again did well to block a header from Jason Kennedy. With seven minutes left Aaron Lescott had a fierce drive deflected over the bar, but as time ran out both sides settled for a point.
