The 27-year-old has made 18 appearances for the Spireites this term, 12 of them starts, and has found the net three times, most recently at the start of this month in a 6-1 FA Cup demolition of Hartlepool, Walsall's opponents on Saturday against whom Westcarr may make his debut.

He signed for Chesterfield last summer, scoring 12 goals in 48 appearances as the Spireites failed to maintain their League One status.

Saddlers boss Dean Smith said: "Craig is a player who we have been aware of for some time. We had no hesitation in bringing him in when the opportunity presented itself to us.

"He played in League One last season and caused us problems, so we know that he can be a handful.

"He's quick, can carry the ball and link up the play and also score goals. He's also got that bit of experience which we need."

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
