Jon Whitney Offers Injury Update Ahead of Gillingham Clash

Jon Whitney has offered a brief injury update ahead of this weekend's Sky Bet League One clash with Gillingham.
Walsall manager Jon Whitney has spoken to club journalists ahead of this weekend's League One clash with Gillingham and offered a brief update on the injury status of a trio of first-teamers.

Luke Leahy took a knock during week's Checkatrade Trophy victory over Shrewsbury Town, Florent Cuvelier has been out with a slight niggle following the 3-0 win at Doncaster Rovers in October, while Callum Cockerill-Mollett continues to recover from a broken kneecap.

Jon, who was speaking via the club's official channel 'Saddlers TV', has an almost fully-fit squad to select from and expects to have his options added to over the coming weeks, he said; "Flo is back in and has trained all week. We know all about the quality he has - Flo just has to relax and train for a couple of weeks. He needs some consistency to his season now but we’re quite confident we’ll get that.

"Callum Cockerill-Mollett is still doing his rehab on his knee with no setbacks but he’s another four-to-six weeks from playing yet. Luke is okay - he’s fit to play. He trained on Tuesday with Marc Czuczman, ticked all the boxes and he’s back with me now, so he’s pushing for a place for the weekend."
