The Saddlers' first-team will not be in action this weekend.
Walsall's League Two clash with Leyton Orient, which was due to take place at Banks's Stadium on Saturday afternoon, has been suspended after the O's confirmed a number of positive Covid-19 test results.

A statement, released by the EFL confirms; This weekend’s Sky Bet League Two fixture between Walsall and Leyton Orient has been suspended and will not take place on Saturday as scheduled.
