WOW. Walsall being shown on Sky. Whatever next? Our trip to Merthyr Tydfil has been selected by Sky and the match will now be played on Friday 4th November with a 19.45 kick off time. The allocation for our away trip to Merthyr Tydfil in the first round of the FA Cup is just 390 seats. For full details, see full story on our homepage.

Kris Taylor says the team visit Barnsley at the weekend full of confidence and adds: Taylor told the official site 'Obviously I was pleased to be back in the starting line-up and it would be nice to think that I can now start to play my part in us getting a winning run together.'

Merson hailed keeper Murphy and Ian Roper for their displays in the 1-0 win over Doncaster saying 'Roper and Joe were different class. It's the first time I have been able to play Ropes this season because of injury and he never lost a tackle or a header.'

Twins Philip and Peter Doran, Lee Clayton, Richard Taundry and Charlton Davies will all be making their debuts at the reserves level when they face Rotherham away tonight in the Pontin's Holidays League.

The rumour mill rumbles on. This time The Saddlers have been linked to Birmingham City's 19 year old Neil Kilkenny.

Sunderland have told Merse that they don't want on loan keeper Joe Murphy cup tied so we have a goalkeeping problem for our FA Cup trip to Merthyr Tydfil. Teenager Rene Gilmartin will play step in for only his second senior game.

Winger Mark Wright is out of contention for a month or so as he has picked up a damaged medial ligament.
