This Tuesday night the Saddlers play host to Swindon Town in Sky Bet League One.

The Saddlers, who thumped Notts County 5-1 at the weekend have an almost fully-fit squad to select from, although, will be without left-back Andy Taylor who continues to receive treatment for a knee injury.

The 27 year-old has had a career plagued with knee problems and will be hoping for a swift return from this latest setback.

Mark Cooper's Swindon Town are assessing Ryan Mason and Jay McEveley ahead of the game.

Attacking midfielder Mason, who is on-loan from Tottenham Hotspur was forced off with a muscle spasm during Saturday's victory over Shrewsbury Town. Former Black Burn Rovers defender McEveley was subbed early in the second half of the same game with a knock.

New Robins signing Jamie Reckord, could be set for a start, while Ryan Harley is ready to deputise for Mason if he cannot feature.

In terms of head-to-head, Swindon hold a slight overall lead with thirty-three wins to the Saddlers thirty-two, there have also been twenty-six draws between the two sides.

Walsall will be hoping to complete the season double over their opponents following a 3-1 victory at the County Ground back in October, the Saddlers secured victory with goals from Sam Mantom and Ashley Hemmings (2).

Tomorrow evening's referee will be Mark Brown who is based in West Yorkshire. Referee Brown has officiated over nineteen games this season, where he has issued thirty-nine yellow and a total of seven red cards, he has also awarded six penalties.

David Avent and Ian Dudley are set to run the lines, whilst Mark Howes will be Fourth Official.
