Notts County boss Martin Allen has no new injury worries for the League One clash with Walsall.

County played a friendly against Juventus just two days before they host the Saddlers but came out of the match in Turin unscathed.

Defender Stephen Hunt remains sidelined with injury, but Ricky Ravenhill has fully recovered from concussion after he started against Juve.

Lee Hughes came off the bench to score the equaliser in a 1-1 draw and showed no signs of struggling with a neck injury he suffered against Preston.

The Magpies will be looking to build on their impressive performance in Italy as well as trying to string together two successive league wins for the first time this season.

Walsall can welcome back Will Grigg as well as a fully-fit Jon Macken for the trip.

Grigg has missed the Saddlers` last two matches having been on international duty with Northern Ireland`s Under-21s but returns to the fold at Meadow Lane.

Fellow striker Macken started last weekend`s 1-0 home defeat to Brentford before being withdrawn shortly after half-time when it was clear he was not 100% fit having got little training under his belt following an ankle injury.

But he is now raring to go against County and will compete with Grigg and Ryan Jarvis to start in attack.

Hungarian youngster David Grof has kept out regular first-choice goalkeeper Jimmy Walker of late and the pair will again battle it out to see who starts.

Walsall will face a County side who only return to England on Friday after a prestigious exhibition match in Italy against Juventus on Thursday night to mark the opening of the Serie A club`s new stadium.
