As you were for Saddlers

Boss Dean Smith is expected to name an unchanged line-up for Walsall's home clash against Notts County.

Smith has kept faith with the same XI for the Saddlers' 100 per cent start to the season, which has produced League One victories over Tranmere and Oldham as well as a Capital One Cup triumph at Port Vale.

On-loan Chelsea striker Milan Lalkovic is expected to return unscathed from international duty with Slovakia's Under-21 squad.

Defender Andy Taylor (ankle) remains the only absentee.

Former Walsall defender Manny Smith returns to the Notts County squad.

Smith, a Saddler prior to his move to the Magpies last summer, missed the 4-2 home defeat to Peterborough through suspension but is expected to slot straight back in at centre-half alongside captain Dean Leacock.

Boss Chris Kiwomya is considering other changes in order to kick-start his side's Sky Bet League One campaign following back-to-back losses. Winger David Bell could make his debut if he is fit, while the likes of Francois Zoko and Andy Haworth have not yet started a game.
