Walsall midfielder Sam Mantom has been ruled out to three/four weeks following his ankle injury sustained against Burton Albion.
It was feared that Mantom had suffered same knee injury which ruled him out of the last campaign but it’s not as bad as first thought.
George Evans will continue in Mantom’s absence with the Man City youngster finding the net on his debut on Tuesday.
Everyone at Vital Walsall wishes Sam a quick recovery.
Fellow midfielder Isaiah Osbourne continues his rehabilitation following his knee injury.
