Hutchings wants Saddlers response

31 August 2009 08:56
The Saddlers boss watched his charges put in a lifeless display to draw 0-0 at home with Gillingham on Saturday and he is expecting a lot more against the Shakers.

Captain Mark Hughes continues to struggle with a hip problem and is again a doubt, but replacement centre-back Stephen Roberts should be okay despite having to be withdrawn in the 70th minute at the weekend due to cramp.

Recent signing Darren Byfield is nowhere near match fit but could again take a place on the bench and come on in the latter stages if required.

As is the case with competition rules, Hutchings will be required to field a starting line-up that includes at least six of the 11 players that have started most often in first-team games this season.
