Football - Saddlers go without Flo

Walsall continue to be without Florent Cuvelier when they make the short trip to neighbours Coventry.


The on-loan midfielder has missed the last seven matches with a troublesome hamstring injury and is receiving treatment at parent club Stoke.

It is hoped, however, that Cuvelier could be fit to face Yeovil next weekend.

Defender Ben Purkiss is set to come back into contention having been ruled out of late with a hamstring problem.

Manager Dean Smith has options at his disposal as the Saddlers strive to end their 14-match winless run stretching back to late September.

Striker Craig Westcarr started on the bench in the 1-1 draw against Hartlepool last time out and could start, while the likes of George Bowerman, Adam Chambers and James Baxendale are also pushing for inclusion.
