Walsall goalkeeper Rene Gimartin has been ruled out for three to four weeks due to a hamstring injury.

The Dublin-born goalkeeper, 22, has only recently established himself as first-choice at the Banks's Stadium, starting the last nine games having previously had a bit-part role behind Clayton Ince.

But after grabbing his chance, he had to limp off during Saturday's victory over Exeter - leaving the Trinidad and Tobago shot-stopper to step in.

And scan results have now highlighted a 3cm tear in Gilmartin's hamstring that will keep him on the sidelines until the middle of next month.
