The Saddlers go into this match without dropping a point so far this season.
The Saddlers go into this match without dropping a point so far this season, following an opening day demolition of Tranmere Rovers and a victory over Oldham Athletic the following Saturday, Notts County on the other hand are yet to take a single league point they suffered an opening day defeat to Sheffield United and a loss to Peterborough United less than a week later.

In terms of head-to-head, County are in the lead with twenty-six wins to Walsall's nineteen.

Walsall will be without winger Milan Lalkovic, who picked up a knock on international duty, and left-back Andy Taylor, but are otherwise able to select from a fully fit squad.
It's been a good start so far. That said, there's still a long way to go but we're looking bright and have a willingness to improve and continue progressing.
It will be another tough test for us against Notts County. They have some good players in their ranks and Chris Kiwomya is starting to put his stamp on things.
I watched them against Sheffield United in their opening game of the season; they've had some difficult fixtures so far and have suffered at the hands of suspension and injury, but I expect them to come here and be tricky opponents. - Walsall manager Dean Smith.
Notts County manager Chris Kiwomya is set to make a number of changes, with midfielder Andre Boucaud in line for a recall, while David Bell, who has a knock, and Andy Haworth are yet to make their debuts, however Gary Liddle is suspended.

Four trialists have today signed short-term contracts with County, 21-year-old former Ipswich Town midfielder Ronan Murray, who made 13 loan appearances for Plymouth Argyle last season, is joined by Callum Bennett, Jeremy Balmy and Jordan Holt.

Balmy, who has previously been linked with Arsenal and Tottenham, was released by French side Le Havre at the end of last season, Holt moves to Meadow Lane from Scottish Premier League team St Mirren. Bennett, like Murray, is a product of the Ipswich Town academy.
With all the players, I'm saying ‘go out there and make it difficult for me – put a show on. Enoch Showunmi has done that for me, he didn't start in the Sheffield United game and he came on and scored and he then scored against Fleetwood. Anyone that does that will stay in the side – and that goes out to the young lads as well. - Notts County manger Chris Kiwomya
