Walsall defender Joe Foulkes is currently the only Saddler out on loan as he continues his short-term stay with the Harriers.

Scheduled to remain with the Harriers until early January 2022, Joe, who has been ever-present for the Aggborough side, was named among the starting XI as Russ Penn's side took on Ware in the Third Qualifying Round of the Emirates FA Cup.
The game had got off to the perfect start for Harriers, as they went in front with just forty-five seconds on the clock when striker Amari Morgan-Smith netted his first goal of the season with a close-range finish.

Sadly for Joe Foulkes, his participation in the game was over within fifteen minutes of the opening whistle, as he picked up an injury shortly after setting up Sam Austin for an effort on goal.

The second and final goal of the game arrived with just two minutes of normal time remaining, as Luke Simpson did well to parry away a curling shot from 18 yards, but was unable to deny Leigh Rose, who slotted home from the rebound.

The match was full of openings and efforts, but neither side was able to grab the winning goal, with the teams now scheduled to meet again on Tuesday for a replay.

Defender Foulkes, who had to be taken from the field of play on a stretcher, will report back to Walsall's Essington Training Ground on Monday for an evaluation, with Harrier boss Penn admitting it didn't look good.
