YOUTH ALLIANCE | Walsall Face Carlisle United Later Today

Graham Biggs' Walsall Under-18s are back in action this weekend as they travel North to take on Carlisle United at midday.
Graham Biggs and his Walsall Under-18s side are back in Youth Alliance action this weekend as they travel North to take on Carlisle United.

The Saddlers, who are yet to win in either league or cup so far this season, will be keen to bounce back from last weekend's four-one defeat to Wigan Athletic as they look to move off the foot of the table.

Head of Youth Graham Biggs has been dealt a difficult hand so far this campaign as his squad is severely depleted thanks to a series of injuries and senior call-ups, however he has been keen to sing the praises of his remaining squad, which includes several from lower age groups, as they continue to gain plenty of experience.

This weekend's opponents Carlisle have won one, drawn two and lost one of their opening five league games and will be keen to close the gap to league leaders Tranmere Rovers.

This afternoon's match is due to kick-off at midday, and we hope to have an update later today.
