Football - Purkiss to sit it out for Saddlers

Ben Purkiss will miss Walsall's home clash with Leyton Orient through suspension.

PA Sport Report

The right-back was sent off for a second bookable offence in last weekend's 1-1 draw at Rotherham and serves a one-match ban, with Paul Downing set to deputise.

Dean Holden will also watch from the sidelines as he continues to work his way back from the knee injury picked up in training at the start of February.

Walsall's play-off hopes have faded after a run of nine games without a victory.
