The defender recently featured in a youth fixture but Saturday's game is expected to come too soon as he recovers from a hamstring injury.

Kwesi Appiah and Dean Parrett remain sidelined with respective hamstring and groin injuries.

Jimmy Abdou, meanwhile, is expected to start.

Walsall will give late fitness tests to Joe Edwards and James Wilson.

Midfielder Edwards sustained a slight hamstring problem against Gillingham last weekend, while defender Wilson has missed the last two games with an ankle problem picked up in training.

Saddlers boss Jon Whitney may opt to stick with an unchanged team following the midweek victory over Fleetwood.

Defender Shaun Donnellan, midfielder Reece Flanagan and forward Dan Agyei are among the players pushing for recalls.
