Lescott lay-off extended

Aaron Lescott is again Walsall`s only absentee as manager Dean Smith looks to spoil Brighton`s promotion party and bolster the Midlands club`s survival ambitions.The defender has been missing since the goalless draw at Swindon on March 5, with his knee ligament strain proving to be more troublesome than first anticipated.But there is a chance Lescott may be back in contention over the Easter period, although Smith will not gamble on his fitness at such a crucial stage of the season.The Saddlers climbed out of the relegation zone after Tuesday`s dramatic 3-2 win over Brentford and are eying back-to-back league wins for the first time since August.However, they know their task will not be easy against a Brighton side who secured promotion to the Championship in midweek and will clinch the League One title with victory at the Banks`s Stadium.
