Smith to keep the faith

Walsall boss Dean Smith could well name an unchanged starting line-up for the visit of League One leaders Brentford.

Smith made one switch for Tuesday night's 1-0 home win over Oldham which moved the Saddlers into the play-off places, handing a start to forward Febian Brandy upon his loan return to the Banks's Stadium.

Smith, with no new injury or suspension problems, must now decide whether to keep faith with the same XI against a Bees side boasting former Saddlers striker Will Grigg.

The match is the last of winger Julian Gray's short-term contract at the club, with a decision set to be made over his future.

Harlee Dean and Adam Forshaw are injury doubts for leaders Brentford.

Defender Dean and midfielder Forshaw are struggling with calf injuries and missed last weekend's 2-0 win over Port Vale.

Winger Kadeem Harris is set to miss out again with a hamstring problem but there is better news for midfielder Jonathan Douglas, who has recovered from his hamstring injury and should be available.

Arsenal youngster Chuba Akpom could be added to the squad after his recent loan move.
