Craig Westcarr: Still suspended

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

Craig Westcarr will miss out as Walsall look to keep their season alive against Bristol City.

The club's top scorer is in the middle of a three-match ban for his red card against Shrewsbury.

On-loan Chelsea striker Milan Lalkovic has fully recovered from his hamstring problem and he could be drafted in by Saddlers boss Dean Smith following last weekend's 1-0 defeat to Port Vale.

Amadou Bakayoko made his first-team debut at Vale Park and is expected to retain his place in the squad as Walsall aim to close the eight-point gap to the play-offs.

Bristol City will be boosted by the return of Bobby Reid when they face Walsall.

Boss Steve Cotterill confirmed the midfielder, who "has a bit of zip about him again" will be back in the squad to face the Saddlers on Saturday having been missing since March 1 with a knee injury.

But the Robins, who could be as high as 12th in League One come Saturday evening, are without midfielder Simon Gillett who serves the second of his two-game ban for picking up 10 yellow cards this season.

City have sold over 1,000 tickets for the away trip, knowing victory could take them to 50 points.
