New Bristol Rovers boss Dave Penney will hand Luke Daniels his debut when Walsall visit the Memorial Stadium.

The West Brom goalkeeper will take over from another loanee, Mikkel Andersen, after his six-month deal from Reading expired this week.

Penney has no injury or suspension problems ahead of his first game in charge.

The former Doncaster and Oldham boss will be hoping to make an immediate impact on a team that have just one win in 12 games in all competitions and currently sit four points from safety in the League One table.

Winger Mark Wright has joined Shrewsbury on a permanent deal after spending the first half of the season on loan at the Greenhous Stadium.

Walsall caretaker manager Dean Smith may keep faith with the same XI who started Saturday`s thrilling 3-3 draw at Tranmere.

The rock-bottom Saddlers scored twice in the closing minutes at Prenton Park to salvage a valuable point and have the chance to build on that against a Rovers side just four points above them.

Smith has no new injury concerns and will check on both goalkeeper Jimmy Walker (hamstring) and midfielder Richard Taundry (ankle), who have an outside chance ahead of the trip to the Memorial Stadium.

Both have been missing of late, as has striker Darren Byfield (knee) who continues to work his way towards a return later this month.
