Preview: Torquay United Vs Walsall: Bring It!
The Saddlers take on League Two Torquay United in the FA Cup second round tomorrow.
The team made the long journey to the south west today, and hope to book their place in the third round. Torquay United currently lie sixth one league below the Saddlers and come off the back of 3 wins and 2 draws.
They beat Mansfield Town in the first round, as Saddlers squeezed through with a 2-0 replay victory against non league Fleetwood Town. 23 year old Elliot Benyon, who scored for the The Gulls in their first round tie, is suspended for the meeting for 5 yellows
The Saddlers will be looking to boost morale with the prize of a Championship or Premier League team in round three, as the team as a whole are starting to turn a corner after a nightmare start to the season.
Torquay United have no new injury concerns, whereas the Saddlers are preparing for a striker crisis following injuries to Reuben Reid and Jon Macken in Tuesday's defeat at Sheffield Wednesday. Martin Devaney is also doubtful as he struggles with a hamstring injury.
Team: With Macken and Reid out, Hutchings may give whipper snapper William Grigg his first start ever alongside loanee Dickinson and leave Nicholls in the wing position. He may also put Nicholls up front and Julian Gray back on the left wing, with Matthew Richards returning to the central midfield position.
Prediction: If the Saddlers can repeat their form of 7 days ago, they should come out winners.
The defence is boosted with Butler so I'll go for 2-0 Saddlers.
