Fit-again Simeon Jackson pushing for Walsall starting berth
Walsall manager Jon Whitney intends to pick his strongest team available for the FA Cup tie against Vanarama National League side Macclesfield.
The Saddlers are unbeaten in six matches and forward Simeon Jackson could be in contention to start having come off the bench for the 1-1 draw against Coventry following his return from a groin problem.
Belgian midfielder Florent Cuvelier has been stepping up his recovery from a foot injury which sidelined him since the end of September.
Midfielder Maz Kouhyar is likely to be out for around six weeks following knee surgery.
Macclesfield will check on the fitness of Chris Holroyd.
The striker had to be withdrawn early in the second half of last weekend's National League defeat at Maidstone due to a groin strain.
Should Holroyd miss out, winger Danny Rowe could find himself back in the starting line-up after recovering from a knee problem.
Ollie Norburn will be missing again as he continues to struggle with a knee injury that could keep him sidelined until the new year.
