The centre-back has been sidelined for the past three games and will again watch on from the sidelines as the Saddlers look for their first win since the opening day. Fellow defender Stephen Roberts also continues to miss out.

Goalkeeper Clayton Ince and midfielder Mark Bradley remain on international duty with Trinidad and Tobago and Wales' Under-21s respectively, meaning Rene Gilmartin will continue in goal.

Striker Darren Byfield and full-back Jamie Vincent sustained slight knocks in the midweek Johnstone's Paint Trophy defeat to Bury but both will be okay.

Recent loan signing Clayton McDonald is set to make his league debut at Carrow Road having featured against the Shakers.
