Walsall manager Chris Hutchings has a couple of selection posers ahead of the visit of Yeovil.

In-form central midfielder Dwayne Mattis was stretchered off in the second half of Saturday`s 2-1 win over Brentford nursing a gash to his calf.

Although the injury is not as bad as first feared, he has received seven stitches which will remain in place for two weeks before they are removed and he can resume training.

Right-back Darryl Westlake also sustained a calf strain against the Bees and will be assessed over the next 24 hours.

The youngster`s potential absence could provide a problem for Hutchings with fellow full-back Rhys Weston still sidelined with a hamstring injury of his own.

Weston will definitely miss out against the Glovers along with winger Peter Till (hamstring) and striker Sam Parkin (groin). Steve Jones is again likely to be on the bench following his return from a groin problem with Hutchings looking to ease the forward back into the action.

Yeovil are set to be boosted by the return of on-loan Tottenham midfielder Ryan Mason.

Town's on-loan Spurs youngster has been sidelined by a knee injury and missed Saturday's 2-0 defeat at Charlton and the 1-0 home defeat by Colchester as a result.

Glovers boss Terry Skiverton said: "I think Ryan might be ready to return. He's getting over a slight knock but he's someone who would be a great addition to the squad."

Skiverton is also able to call on fit-again Jean-Paul Kalala and Gavin Tomlin.

The pair were ruled out of the defeat by Colchester but, as anticipated, returned to Town's travelling squad on Saturday and were both introduced as second-half substitutes.
