Handful of changes possible for Walsall ahead of Northampton clash


Walsall manager Darrell Clarke is unlikely to make too many changes against Northampton.

Clarke made three changes to the team that won at Forest Green as the Saddlers drew at Newport in midweek, having previously made just one alteration.

Shay Facey, Stuart Sinclair and Rory Holden will be hoping to get back into the starting line up.

The Saddlers will be looking to extend their unbeaten run to three league matches, but they have lost four of the last six at home in all competitions.

Northampton boss Keith Curle will not rush Alan McCormack back into action despite the Cobblers suffering successive defeats.

The 36-year-old has struggled for fitness and been blighted by injury this season but has been an important cog in the midfield when he has played.

McCormack has resumed training but “wants to sprint before he can walk” and Curle is having to temper the temptation to bring him back into the squad.

James Olayinka remains sidelined with a foot problem but could play again before the end of the month.
