Walsall have no injury problems for the visit of Yeovil but remain without the suspended Adam Chambers.

The midfielder, a summer signing from Leyton Orient, serves the final match of his three-game ban for his dismissal during the club's 3-0 Carling Cup defeat to Middlesbrough.

Chambers returns into contention for next weekend's trip to Bournemouth.

Skipper Andy Butler saw his appeal upheld against his red card versus Hartlepool last Saturday, allowing him to play in Tuesday's 3-2 loss at Sheffield United and he is again expected to lead out the Saddlers.

Walsall took a two-goal lead against the Blades before going down 3-2, and Butler has called for his team-mates to build on the positive display.

"The lads were superb at Bramall Lane on Tuesday," he told the club's official website. "Everyone put in a great shift and if we continue to play like we did for the majority of the game then we will win more than we lose this season."

Yeovil manager Terry Skiverton has a fully fit squad to choose from for the game as he looks to turn around the club's disappointing start to the season.

That means a return for 20-year-old striker Jonathan Obika.

The former Tottenham youngster missed the 1-0 home defeat to MK Dons in midweek because of the injury he sustained in the Glovers' only win of the season against Oldham last Saturday.

Obika may replace fellow striker Steven MacLean, who is yet to score so far this season, while Kieran Agard will probably have to settle for a place on the substitutes' bench.

Summer signing Curtis Haynes-Brown was also absent in midweek but should be involved after recovering from illness.
