Josh Ginnelly to Miss Out as Keates Opts to Rest Pacey Winger

Saddlers boss Dean Keates has spoken to the press ahead of this evening's pre-season meeting between Walsall and visitors Aston Villa, and revealed that summer signing Josh Ginnelly is suffering from tendinitis, and will miss the clash at Banks's Stadium.
Keates, who aside from Ginnelly, Kory Roberts and Joe Edwards, has a full-fit squad to select from, has insisted that Josh is not a major injury concern but could benefit from a couple of rest days as the busy 2018/19 campaign edges ever closer.

Speaking via the Express & Star, Dean said; "Josh has a little bit of tendinitis. He’s had a chat with the physio and we felt it might be best for him to give the Stoke and Villa games a miss and let it settle down. He is not a major concern. In all the fitness tests we have done he has been flying, he’s a fit lad. But a few days rest won’t do him any harm."
