As you were for Walsall

Walsall could name an unchanged side for the fourth straight match when they host Fleetwood.

The Saddlers have won six in a row at the Banks's Stadium in League One but another three points is crucial if Jon Whitney's team are to keep alive their hopes of gatecrashing the play-offs.

However, Whitney is still unable to call on midfielders Florent Cuvelier and Reece Flanagan.

Cuvelier has been out for a month with a hamstring problem while Flanagan has not played all season after dislocating his shoulder in a development game on his comeback from knee surgery.

Striker Devante Cole is a doubt for Fleetwood having been forced off with a foot injury just before half-time of Saturday's defeat to Bolton.

It leaves manager Uwe Rosler with just two fit forwards in Ash Hunter and David Ball, with midfielder Bobby Grant pushed into an attacking role at the weekend.

The loss to Bolton ended an 18-match unbeaten run and Rosler may be tempted to make changes again having picked Amari'i Bell and, more surprisingly, Victor Nirennold as wing-backs specifically for the Bolton game.

It could mean Joe Maguire and Conor McLaughlin are restored to the positions but forward Wes Burns (leg) and midfielder Martyn Woolford (knee) are still unavailable.
