Walsall Head Coach Michael Flynn has spoken ahead of this weekend's League Two meeting with Grimsby Town and confirmed that midfielder Joe Riley has suffered another injury setback.

Riley, who joined the Saddlers from Carlisle United earlier this summer, is yet to make any appearances in a Walsall shirt after picking up an as-yet unspecified injury early in the Reds' pre-season campaign.

Flynn was hoping to have 25-year-old Riley back training this week, but the former Cumbrian has suffered another injury flare-up meaning there is now no timetable for his return.

Speaking via the Express & Star, Michael said; "Joe Riley's had a reaction again. We thought he might have been training today, which would have been a good lift – not just for him but everybody to see him there.

"He's got a lot of ability, but he's another one that I don't know how long he's going to be. I'm not going to even keep guessing anymore, because every time I give you an update and say he's getting closer, there's been a reaction.

"It's a nightmare if I'm honest. It's been two months or two-and-a-half months now. Sometimes, you'd sooner find a hairline fracture and have a time frame of six to eight weeks, because you know what that is.

"You know how to treat it. This one is very, very frustrating, and I'm not going to even attempt to say how long I think."
