The hosts are without captain Andy Butler as they look to end their 15-game winless run.

The defender starts a two-match ban after being sent off during the 5-1 defeat away at Coventry last weekend.

But the Saddlers are boosted by the return to fitness of Ben Purkiss. The defender has been sidelined for the last seven games with a hamstring injury but is back in contention for the visit of the Glovers.

Midfielder Florent Cuvelier is not available for the game as he continues to struggle with a hamstring problem of his own that has kept him out since October, but he is nearing a return to fitness.

On-loan goalkeeper Aaron McCarey's deal comes to an end after the game but the club are looking into extending his stay.

The visitors welcome back Keanu Marsh-Brown after the winger missed the goalless draw against Notts County on Saturday as he served a one-match ban after picking up five yellow cards.

But Marsh-Brown is now available for an immediate return to Gary Johnson's side.

Johnson will be without defender Dale Bennett after the 22-year-old returned to parent club Watford following a frustrating loan spell.

Bennett played just 10 minutes for the Glovers in a substitute appearance against Carlisle, after his stint at the Somerset club was plagued by a back injury.

Johnson is able to call on an otherwise fully fit squad.

His side won their last away trip 1-0 at Crawley, and will be looking to move back towards the play-off places, after having won only one of their last four league games.

It's A Massive, Big, Brilliant Mailbox

And we left lots of Suarez/Costa mails unopened. What we do have is a video of some rotten Suarez tackles and views on the future of football, Spurs, Liverpool and...

But Biting Doesn't Hurt Like Stamping...

There are Liverpool fans arguing that Luis Suarez is nowhere near Diego Costa's sh*t-house league but we have plenty of love for the agitator too. Oh and Spurs...
