Saddlers waiting on Grigg

Walsall will hope Will Grigg can manage two games in four days as they prepare to entertain midlands neighbours Coventry.

The Northern Ireland international, who has 19 goals to his name this season, was a big doubt for Good Friday's trip to Yeovil but made an earlier than expected to return to start from the off at Huish Park.

Grigg lasted 78 minutes of the goalless draw and boss Dean Smith, who is not expected to be have any other injury or suspension concerns, will be hoping he is fresh enough to line up once more against the Sky Blues.

New loan signing Romaine Sawyers appeared for the closing stages against the Glovers and will be aiming for a bigger role on Easter Monday as the Saddlers strive to stretch their 11-match unbeaten run.

Coventry boss Steven Pressley will be tempted to keep faith with an unchanged XI.

Pressley poured praise on his players after they responded from one of the toughest weeks in the crisis club's history to inflict a 1-0 defeat on league leaders Doncaster on Good Friday.

The victory would have kept City within touching distance of the play-offs were it not for a 10-point deduction for going into administration, imposed by the Football League 24 hours previous.

Pressley made three changes for the clash as fit-again skipper Carl Baker returned in midfield alongside Adam Barton, with Callum Ball taking his place in attack.

Gary McSheffrey and Cody McDonald, both benched, will be hoping for recalls against the Saddlers while Steven Jennings will again be assessed having missed out due to injury.
