Walsall welcome back Jason Price as they look to extend their unbeaten run to five games against high-flying Bournemouth.

The on-loan forward was ineligible for last Saturday`s 3-1 triumph over parent club Carlisle under the terms of his switch from Brunton Park.

But Price is available again and manager Dean Smith faces a decision over whether to hand him a recall.

That just leaves striker Darren Byfield on the sidelines, although, having revealed he thought he was facing retirement, the Saddlers captain has now stepped up his training having undergone career-saving sugar injections which have strengthened his knee.

He is now hoping to return to Walsall`s matchday 18 over the next couple of weeks as he builds up his fitness levels.

Bournemouth boss Lee Bradbury could hand new signing Mathieu Baudry his debut.

Defender Baudry, 22, goes into the squad to face the Saddlers following his arrival from French club Troyes, joining fellow new signing Ben Williamson, who will be hoping for a more prominent role following his debut in injury time of the 1-1 draw with Leyton Orient last weekend.

Full-back Rhoys Wiggins, who has missed the last three games with a thigh injury, should return to the starting line-up in place of Warren Cummings.

However, goalkeeper Dan Thomas, defender Ryan Garry, midfielder Mark Molesley and strikers Jayden Stockley and Steve Lovell are unavailable.

Thomas has joined Dorchester Town on loan, where he will link up with team-mate Stockley who has extended his loan with the non-league side.

Garry has begun rehabilitation from a nerve problem in his shin, while Molesley and Lovell, despite stepping up their comebacks from injury, will not be available for selection.
