The Saddlers have received some welcome injury news as summer signing Joe Riley is not expected to miss much more playing time, despite recently adding to the already lengthy list of injured stars.

Riley, who made the move to WS1 from Carlisle United at the start of the summer, recently suffered a foot injury which was initially believed to be quite severe.

Potentially joining the likes of Conor Wilkinson, Joss Labadie, Jack Earing, Liam Gordon, and Oisin McEntee in the treatment room, Joe has missed much of the Saddlers' pre-season after picking up a knock.

However, after undergoing a scan, the defender who can also play in midfield has been given something of a clean bill of health and is expected to return to full training in the near future.

Speaking via the Express & Star, Walsall boss Michael Flynn confirmed the good news before commenting on just how crazy the recent run of injuries has been, he said; "We’ve had some good news with Joe Riley.

"His scan results have come back clear. He was one we were fearing could be out for three months.

"It’s been a crazy chain of events I haven’t seen anywhere else as a manager. They've been crazy injuries, but Joe’s back."
