Injury Update: Ginnelly Returns as Dunn Misses Out

Walsall manager Dean Keates has spoken to the media following his side's pre-season victory over Cheltenham Town and has offered an update on the injury status of winger Josh Ginnelly, who missed the three previous outings with tendinitis, and goalkeeper Chris Dunn, who was not named amongst the side to take on the Robins.
The manager, who had seen his side secure victory over their hosts thanks to goals from Nicky Devlin and Andy Cook, admitted that he'd protected Ginnelly over the last few weeks and also confirmed that Chris Dunn missed out after developing fluid on his hip after the pre-season clash with Ajax Amsterdam.

Dean, who was speaking via the club's official website - Saddlers.co.uk - said; "Josh was bright, he was sharp. He has had a little niggle with tendinitis. It was just a case of protecting him for the three games he missed – that were all in a short space of time. But he has felt fine and has trained all week and we got 75 minutes into him at Cheltenham which is great."

The manager also updated us on the status of goalkeeper Chris Dunn, who missed Saturday's clash with the Robins with youngster Ethan Dawe taking his place on the bench, he continued; "He has had a bit of a niggle but he’ll be fit for next week. It’s a bit of a strange one – he has had a bit of fluid come on his hip from the Ajax game. He is in every day training doing handling work but we have had to limit the contact side of things. We didn’t bring him because if he needed to come on he wouldn’t have been able to. But he’ll be fine for the season."
