Football - Same again for Smith

Dean Smith may well name an unchanged XI for the third successive match as he takes Walsall to fellow promotion contenders Swindon.

Smith watched his side record an impressive 3-0 victory at Carlisle before following that up with a 3-1 win over Shrewsbury last weekend, with in-form striker Will Grigg bagging five of the six goals.

And, with no injury or suspension concerns, Smith will see now reason to change a winning formula for the trip to Wiltshire.

Defender Ben Purkiss returned to the bench against neighbours Shrewsbury following his hamstring injury, while fit-again Richard Taundry is also now back in contention after his ankle problem.

The Saddlers, eighth in League One, are seven points adrift of third-placed Swindon and just five short of the play-off places.
