Football - Selection dilemma for Smith

Walsall boss Dean Smith must decide whether to tinker with a winning formula as his side face a third game in the space of a week at home to Crawley.

Smith named an unchanged XI for the fourth successive match on Tuesday as the Saddlers brushed side fellow promotion rivals Tranmere 2-0, coming after their 2-2 draw at Swindon last weekend.

And, with no new injury or suspension problems expected, the only thing on Smith's mind may be whether to rotate one or two players in order to try and extend the midlands club's eight-match unbeaten record.

The likes of Nicky Featherstone, Ashley Hemmings, James Baxendale, George Bowerman, Ben Purkiss and Dean Holden are all options should Smith look to freshen things up.
