Andy Taylor is the only absentee as Walsall travel to Blue Square Bet Premier side Lincoln.

The full-back was forced off in the first half of last Saturday's 1-1 draw at Bury nursing a hamstring complaint which also looks likely to rule him out of the League One clash at home to Scunthorpe on Tuesday.

James Chambers stepped in at Gigg Lane and is the leading candidate to get the nod from the off at Sincil Bank.

Manager Dean Smith, who this week put pen to paper on a new two-and-a-half year contract, otherwise has a full-strength squad to select from.

Smith must make a decision as to whether he should recall defender Dean Holden as he returns to the fold following a one-match suspension.

On-loan midfielder Florent Cuvelier has been given permission to feature by parent club Stoke.
