Walsall have been dealt an injury blow as on-loan Celtic defender Eoghan O'Connell was substituted during the first-half of Tuesday evening's Sky Bet League One defeat to promotion-chasing Fleetwood Town.

O'Connell, who was making his twentieth Saddlers appearance since arriving on loan during the January Transfer Window, was replaced by Matt Preston after thirty-six minutes of play as, following a foot-race with Fleetwood attacker Bobby Grant, O'Connell appeared to tweak a hamstring and was treated by Head Physio Marc Czuczman before being replaced.
Eoghan also suffered a broken nose as during the minutes building up to his hamstring injury, with the Cork-born defender adding to Czuczman's ever-increasing workload.

Walsall FC are yet to offer an update on O'Connell's status but are likely to fully assess him on Wednesday morning.
