Yeovil's new loan signing Angelo Balanta is set to be involved after joining from QPR until the end of the season.

The 22-year-old, who can play on the left wing or up front, is no stranger to League One having spent three spells with MK Dons, the most recent coming at the start of the current campaign.

His arrival comes after two on-loan attackers returned to their parent clubs for treatment.

Striker Jordan Cook is back with Charlton so they can assess a knee injury while fellow forward Wes Fletcher has returned to Burnley having sustained a knock.

Glovers manager Gary Johnson has been busy ahead of the Easter weekend's fixtures. He not only extended the loan of Fulham defender Dan Burn until the end of the campaign but also secured the return of Middlesbrough midfielder Matty Dolan for the same period of time.

The Glovers currently lie seventh in the league but remain just three points off the automatic promotion places ahead of the clash.

Top scorer Will Grigg remains a big doubt for Walsall.

The 19-goal striker missed last weekend's goalless draw at Hartlepool with a hamstring injury sustained on international duty with Northern Ireland and has not trained at all this week.

However, the Saddlers remain hopeful he may be back in contention for Monday's home clash against neighbours Coventry.

Grigg is Walsall's only concern for the trip, with boss Dean Smith boasting an otherwise fully-fit squad.

The midlands club are currently eighth in League One, just one place and three points behind Yeovil, knowing defeat would leave them cut adrift from those above them, most of whom also boast games in hand.
