Football - Saddlers wait on Butler

Skipper Andy Butler is again touch and go for the visit of already-relegated Bury as Walsall look to keep their play-off dreams going until the final day.

The centre-back missed last weekend's 1-1 draw at Scunthorpe with a foot injury and continues to be rated as 50/50 ahead of the visit of the Shakers.

Fellow defender Andy Taylor, however, is definitely ruled out once more with the hamstring problem which sidelined him at Glanford Park.

Manager Dean Smith has no new injury or suspension problems, with striker Will Grigg having suffered no ill-effects upon his return from a hamstring injury against the Iron - against whom he netted his 20th goal of the season.

The Saddlers are four points outside the play-off places and need to beat Bury, as well as hope sixth-placed Swindon drop points at home to Stevenage, if they are to have any chance of taking their pursuit to the last weekend of the season.
