Stockport County Vs Walsall, Sat 3 Apr 2010

Brought to you by William Hill


Stockport boss Gary Ablett has no new injury or suspension concerns ahead of the home clash with Walsall.

County were thumped 5-0 at Millwall last weekend after an abject surrender which led to Ablett issuing an apology to supporters who made the trip to the New Den.

Ablett's options are again limited but he may look to make changes for the clash with the Saddlers.

The former Liverpool and Everton defender ran the rule over four trialists this week.

Frenchmen Cedric Ngakam and Goffin Boyoko, former Ipswich defender Matthew Brown and Stoke striker Adam Vickers were all looking to impress Ablett.

But it remains to be seen whether any will be included this weekend as rock-bottom County bid to secure a rare win.

Dwayne Mattis and Matt Richards will continue to be monitored ahead of Walsall`s trip.

The pair, who were struggling with respective Achilles and ankle problems, returned to training ahead of last weekend`s 2-1 defeat at Exeter but failed to prove their fitness in time for the clash.

They have both continued to train this week and stand a better chance of featuring, although manager Chris Hutchings will take no chances.

Peter Till, however, will definitely be unavailable to the Saddlers boss due to a hamstring problem.

He joins central defenders Mark Hughes and Clayton McDonald on the sidelines as they serve out their respective suspensions.

Captain Hughes misses the last game of his three-match ban and will return for Monday`s home clash against Wycombe but McDonald misses both of the club`s Easter fixtures.
