Conor Thomas: A doubt for the visitors
Team news for Saturday's League One clash between Walsall and Coventry City at the Bescot Stadium.
The Saddlers again boast a fully-fit squad for the visit of neighbours Coventry as they aim to record a third successive victory.
Tuesday's impressive 3-1 success at Swindon moved the Saddlers up to sixth in League One and boss Dean Smith faces a welcome selection dilemma ahead of the visit of the Sky Blues.
Nicky Featherstone was recalled to midfield at the County Ground in place of the more attack-minded Romaine Sawyers and Smith must now decide whether to revert to a more adventurous approach with the Saddlers back on home soil.
The last three meetings between Walsall and Coventry have produced 17 goals.
Conor Thomas and Jordan Willis are both injury doubts ahead of Coventry's short trip to midlands neighbours Walsall.
Midfielder Thomas (knee) and right-back Willis (knock) did not train on Friday but will be assessed on the morning of the clash at the Banks's Stadium.
Boss Steven Pressley has named an unchanged starting line-up for the last three matches and watched his side follow up four points against Sheffield United and Wolves by inflicting a first defeat of the season on Leyton Orient in midweek. But the Scot may now be forced to change a winning formula.
Right-back Cyrus Christie (ankle) and forward Billy Daniels (hernia) continue to miss out.
