Walsall v Bristol City preview

Craig Westcarr will miss out as Walsall look to keep their season alive against Bristol City.
The club’s top scorer is in the middle of a three-match ban for his red card against Shrewsbury.
On-loan Chelsea striker Milan Lalkovic has fully recovered from his hamstring problem and he could be drafted in by Saddlers boss Dean Smith following last weekend’s 1-0 defeat to Port Vale.
Amadou Bakayoko made his first-team debut at Vale Park and is expected to retain his place in the squad as Walsall aim to close the eight-point gap to the play-offs.
Bristol City will be boosted by the return of Bobby Reid when they face Walsall.
Boss Steve Cotterill confirmed the midfielder, who “has a bit of zip about him again” will be back in the squad to face the Saddlers on Saturday having been missing since March 1 with a knee injury.
But the Robins, who could be as high as 12th in League One come Saturday evening, are without midfielder Simon Gillett who serves the second of his two-game ban for picking up 10 yellow cards this season.
City have sold over 1,000 tickets for the away trip, knowing victory could take them to 50 points.
