Saddlers at full strength

Walsall again boast a fully-fit squad for the visit of neighbours Coventry as they aim to record a third successive victory.

Tuesday's impressive 3-1 success at Swindon moved the Saddlers up to sixth in League One and boss Dean Smith faces a welcome selection dilemma ahead of the visit of the Sky Blues.

Nicky Featherstone was recalled to midfield at the County Ground in place of the more attack-minded Romaine Sawyers and Smith must now decide whether to revert to a more adventurous approach with the Saddlers back on home soil.

The last three meetings between Walsall and Coventry have produced 17 goals.

Coventry boss Steven Pressley will be hard-pushed to make any changes for the short trip.

The Scot has named an unchanged starting line-up for the last three matches and watched his side follow up four points against Sheffield United and Wolves by inflicting a first defeat of the season on Leyton Orient in midweek.

Tuesday's superb 3-1 victory over the League One leaders will leave it even more difficult for Pressley to change a winning formula with no new injury or suspension concerns expected.

Right-back Cyrus Christie (ankle) and forward Billy Daniels (hernia) continue to miss out.
