Dwayne Mattis is rated as 50/50 for Walsall`s home clash against Millwall.

The midfielder has had the stitches removed from the gash in his leg he sustained against Brentford and is back training with his team-mates, it just remains to be seen whether he will be match ready in time for Saturday.

Winger Peter Till has also resumed training after his hamstring injury but Saturday will come too soon for him to be involved.

Steve Jones was a 68th-minute substitute in last weekend`s 5-1 drubbing at Southampton and, having managed more minutes for the reserves in midweek, is pushing for his first start since December after overcoming his groin troubles.

After conceding five at St Mary`s, manager Chris Hutchings must decide whether to keep faith with recalled goalkeeper Rene Gilmartin against the Lions or hand the gloves back to Clayton Ince.

Striker Sam Parkin (groin) continues to miss out.

Marc Laird could be added to the Millwall squad for the trip.

The midfielder has been sidelined since mid-January with a rib problem but is close to being fit.

Laird's recovery means Gary Alexander is the only member of the Lions squad currently in the treatment room.

The striker, who has been out since October with a heel injury which required surgery, has started jogging and has been pencilled in for a return in April.

Neil Harris, who has been nominated for League One player of the month after hitting five goals in February, will start in attack again.

Boss Kenny Jackett is on the shortlist for manager of the month after four wins from five matches left the Lions on the brink of the play-offs.
