Manny Smith: Back in contention

Manny Smith: Back in contention

Team news for Saturday's League One clash between Walsall and Notts County at Bescot Stadium.

Boss Dean Smith is expected to name an unchanged line-up for the Saddlers' home clash this weekend.

Smith has kept faith with the same XI for Walsall's 100% 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.

Defender Manny Smith returns to the Magpies squad for their trip to the Banks's Stadium.

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.

Enoch Showunmi is fit after a back problem forced the big striker off against Posh last weekend.
