We make the relatively short journey to Shrewsbury seeking revenge on their own patch against a side we dominated here last season - only to lose, infront of the tv cameras.
Graham Turner 'I don't look on it as a revenge mission after our FA Cup defeat there. Yes, we let ourselves down and we let the supporters down - it was a poor performance and there were some bad goals conceded.
'But that's gone, and when you look at our team now there could be six or seven changes from that side'
Dean Smith 'We have had a couple of poor results, but decent performances. We were disappointed going out of the FA Cup last week after controlling the game and Leyton Orient find themselves fortunate to be in the draw.
'We won't change what we do because we believe in what we are doing'
Shrewsbury midfielder Jon Taylor has recovered from a knee injury, but full-back Cameron Gayle is doubtful after turning an ankle in training.
Following Liam McAlinden's recall by Wolves, Shrewsbury's two other loan strikers Tom Eaves (Bolton) and Gozie Ugwu (Reading) will start up front.
The former England Under 20's star has scored three goals during his loan spell from Middlesborough - two of which, have come in his last three starts.
Walsall have no fresh injury worries.
However a booking for Paul Downing or Adam Chambers tomorrow will see them given an automatic one match ban.
Westy has a habit of scoring against Shrewsbury, having scored three times against them in our last two fixtures.
The leading scorer will be looking to add to his tally tomorrow.
Walsall's defeat last season was their first against Shrewsbury in twenty years. Our two fixtures since have been comprehensive, 3-1 and 3-0.
Shrewsbury sit just five points behind the Saddlers.
David Phillips from West Sussex is the man in the middle. He has given twenty yellow cards, two red and two penalties so far this season. He has officiated three Walsall games - two away draws and one defeat.
Given our recent history against Shrewsbury swin would be expected tomorrow however as last seasons game proved, we need to take our chances - something of which we haven't been doing of late. Even so I still expect a victory tomorrow.
