Saddlers strong for Boro clash

Walsall boast a full-strength squad as they play host to Stevenage.

Forward Milan Lalkovic is back in the fold having missed last weekend's last-gasp 1-1 draw at Colchester while on international duty with Slovakia's Under-21 squad.

James Baxendale and Ashley Hemmings came in for Lalkovic and Troy Hewitt, who dropped to the bench at the Weston Homes Community Stadium, and it remains to be seen how manager Dean Smith will line up against Boro.

The Saddlers, just three points off the top six in League One, are going in search of their first home win since the opening day of the season.

Stevenage can welcome back Michael Doughty and Luke Freeman for the trip.

Midfielder Doughty and striker Freeman missed last weekend's clash with Brentford through suspension after collecting five yellow cards each this season.

However, they may struggle to regain their places after Francois Zoko's double secured a 2-1 victory for Boro, their first league win in seven matches.

Forward Darius Charles remains sidelined by an ankle injury and defender Ben Chorley is short of fitness following an injury-hit start to the campaign.
