We welcome Coventry City to The Banks's Stadium for what is shaping up to be game of the day in League 1.
Dean Smith - 'I've watched Coventry a few times this season and we know only too well that Coventry City are a very good team with some talented footballers.
'Steven Pressley has gone there in difficult circumstances and done a great job. He's got them playing the right way'
Steven Pressley - 'Walsall try to pass the ball, like we do. Dean Smith deserves great credit for what he's doing there.'
Walsall have a full strength side to choose from and Dean Smith must choose whether to bring in Romaine Sawyers or play Nicky Featherstone.
What a season Ashley Hemmings is having!
The forgotten man of last season has already scored 5 goals this term and his pace and trickery has left League 1 defences flat footed!
Hemmings this season is like a new signing and will cause Coventry problems.
Coventry have doubts over right-back Jordan Willis and midfielder Conor Thomas, who both have knee injuries.
Aaron Phillips, who came off the bench to score Coventry's late equaliser against Wolves at Molineux last weekend, stands by to deputise for Willis.
First time writing previews that I have struggled to pick an outright threat but Coventry have three.
Strikers Clarke and Wilson top the League 1 charts and when you throw into the mix Carl Baker they have a front three to terrorise anyone in League 1.
Considering there have been 18 goals in this fixture over the years you would think both sides have been at the same level for a decade, however 18 goals have come in the last 3 games between these sides!
Coventry defeated Walsall 6-1 on that forsaken night with Andy Petterson between the sticks and then Coventry defeated Walsall 5-1 at their old ground just 12 months ago, however Walsall gained some respect by beating Coventry 4-0 earlier this year.
Expect goals and more goals tomorrow!
Coventry have won 18 times compared to Walsall's 12.
The man in the middle is Gavin Ward from Surrey (not that one!) Mr Ward is quite frequently giving out penalties so we can expect another given tomorrow. He has given 3 penalties, 18 yellows and 2 red cards in 8 games so far this season.
3-3 Westcarr, Hemmings and Mantom for Walsall.
