We welcome Oldham to WS1 as we look to get back to winning ways. Oldham will be high on confidence following their win against Liverpool last weekend.
Craig Westcarr is back in contention for Walsall after re-joining the club.
Richard Taundry (ankle) remains a doubt, but the Saddlers welcome back Febian Brandy from suspension
The Northern Ireland international superstar is slowly becoming the complete article. Gone are the days of his low confidence and dare I say it Will is probably playing his best football so far in his career.
Oldham are fresh from their FA Cup defeat of Liverpool, but are without goal heroes Matt Smith (shoulder) and Reece Wabara, who has joined Blackpool.
Robbie Simpson (hamstring) is also missing, while new signings Chris Iwelumo, Lee Barnard, Paul Murray and Jordan Obita could make their debuts.
The Latics have more selection problems in midfield, as Youssouf M'Changama is out for the season with a knee problem and captain Dean Furman is on international duty with South Africa.
Matt Smith caused Liverpool so many problems last weekend and I hope Butler will be given the role to man mark the target man. He has already scored 6 goals this term.
Walsall lost their first game is 6 when Colchester beat us easily last weekend. Many will hope that with David Kelly back things are slowly looking up.
Oldham on the otherhand are on a terrible run that has questioned Paul Dickov's managerial credentials. Many have said the Liverpool result has saved his job.
Walsall and Oldham have playe each other 48 times in our history with Oldham winning 19 times to Walsall's 17.
Walsall havent beaten Oldham since 2009, losing 5 out the last 7 at home against the Latics. The most recent match finishing 1-1 at Boundary Park earlier this season.
Given both clubs fortunes recently I can see us winning quite comoftably. A 3-0 win with goals from Brandy, Butler and Grigg
