Rochdale Team News:
Rochdale will be without striker Calvin Andrews as he is facing a nine game ban for an elbow earlier this season.
Player to watch: Ian Henderson
Henderson is a prolific goalscorer and great in the air – so whoever plays in the back four tomorrow night will have a testing evening.
Henderson scored twenty two goals last season and has already scored six goals this term.
Walsall Team News:
I could say all our best players are fit and raring to go but some wont play. James O’Connor and Amadou Bakayoko both deserve their place back in the side, will they return? Probably not.
Only Maz Kouhyar and Reece Flanagan are missing.
Player to watch: Josh Ginnelly
Ginnelly has been a bright spark for the Saddlers since returning to the side. His free kicks and corners are pinpoint and he likes to beat his man and get to the byline. Expect more from the Burnley midfielder.
