Shaibu Could Start as He Beats Registration Deadline by Four Minutes

Jon Whitney will have an almost fully-fit squad to pick from as he and his team make the trip to Ewood Park where they will take on Blackburn Rovers later today.
Walsall manager Jon Whitney will have an almost fully-fit squad to pick from as he and his team make the trip to Ewood Park where they will take on Blackburn Rovers later today.

The manager is expected to name Brentford's Justin Shaibu among his side as the on-loan attacker beat the registration deadline by just four minutes on Monday morning.

Club Secretary and Director Dan Mole confirmed that the 20-year-old will be available for selection, after beating the deadline yesterday and having his loan ratified by the Football Association earlier today. Dan also shared a picture of Justin's match shirt being prepared.
Midfielder Florent Cuvelier is a doubt after turning his ankle during a recent training session, while defender Nicky Devlin is rated as 50/50 after feeling tightness in his hamstring.

Winger Kieron Morris is expected to be fit and could return to the line-up as the Saddlers look to pick up their first victory over Blackburn since December 1973.
